Towering Oaks is community comprised of duplexes off of Spruce Creek Road and close to the Port Orange Business Park. Having a home here puts you in a centralized location for work, the I-95 interchange on Dunlawton Avenue, and the Dunlawton Bridge over to the beach.
It also puts you close to the many businesses along Dunlawton Avenue. These include a Publix grocery store where you can stock your pantry and pick up food for the four-legged member of your family. There are more restaurants to choose from between those at the junction of Dunlawton Avenue and South Nova Road and those at the intersection of Dunlawton and I-95 to let you eat at a different restaurant almost every night of the month.
There are several parks in the area to go walking in, a beach nearby, a nature preserve, and a wildlife management area that covers over 30,000 acres to spend hours of your free time in.
While the community itself is not the busiest in town, Spruce Creek Road tends to be bustling all day long with the business park to the north. During rush hours, most of the roads around here tend to be hectic, but once it dies down, you can take your dog safely out for walks without having to worry about too many cars.
Be aware that this is a family area, which means kids and school buses. This is not always the best combination for walking your dog. But if you must, be sure you use a short leash to help maintain tighter control. Thankfully, there are sidewalks running through the community to walk on and to keep the two of you off the roads. The only thing missing is shade trees to help protect you from the sun during the summer months or from the winter rains.
Directly to the north, there is a small patch of woods with a few trails running through it for you and your dog to wander around in. If you prefer a park, there are two directly to the south. The first is Buschman Park which is a public recreation area with a small lake. The lake has a boardwalk, pavilion, and several trails for you and your dog to take long walks on. There is also plenty of grass for both of you to play around on.
On the east side of the lake is the Margaret Buschman Parcel, a wide swath of woods buffering this picturesque family park from the industrial park next door. It's a wonderful place to bring the whole family, including Fido, for a day out in the fresh air and sunshine. Pack a picnic, bring the tennis ball, and spend the day out in nature!
