It is a progressive city, which is full of history, and offers a diverse opportunity for waterfront relaxation, including fishing, boating, golf, and other sports. There are plenty of top-rated schools in the area, including Spruce Creek High School – one of Newsweek’s Top 100 schools in the nation – and home to Palmer College of Chiropractic, which was founded in 2002 by James E. Hether D.C. The River District, which is home to Riverwalk Park features a playground, splash park, picnic facilities, pavilions, shade structures, additional restrooms, a concession building, a portion of the boardwalk, event lawn, parking, and the southern portion of the trailway. The River District has plans in the works to expand with the newest water-front restaurant Fysh coming soon to Port Orange.
