Dog Areas in Alaqua Lakes

1 Park

Alaqua Lakes is a small gated community in central Florida, just a half-hour drive north from Orlando. The winding streets are lined with well-maintained sidewalks, perfect for a little walk with your pal. There are some incredible houses in Alaqua Lakes to admire and the streets are green and well-kept, making for a very pleasant stroll. 

There is a seven-acre Community Park in the centre of town, however you will need to stick to the sidewalks with your pet and keep him on a leash at all times. For a family day out, enjoy the picnic areas, playgrounds, sports fields, tennis courts and basketball courts at the park.

If you are longing to take Fido out into the wilderness, there are many hiking trails in the Wekiva River Preserve which borders Alaqua Lakes. The Sand Hill Nature Trail showcases some of the incredible flora, especially wildflowers in spring. There is an abundance of wildlife to spot along the way too, but some are dangerous, such as black bears, alligators and snakes – so admire, but don’t get too close! Keep your pup on a lead and bring your water and clean up bags. You many also need your insect repellent when out here, as some of the area is swampy.

So relax, unwind and enjoy your time in this lovely little community. You are sure to leave refreshed, and ready for your next adventure with your furry travel buddy!

Trail lengths vary from around 0.2 miles to 2.5 miles along fairly easy terrain, and all of the trails are well signposted and maintained. At the trailhead, there is ample parking and restrooms available, but you will need to bring your own water and a drinking bowl for your pup. From here, you can also explore a section of the 14-mile Seminole Wekiva Trail, another popular multi-use rail trail that runs through this area.
