Casa De Encanto is centrally located in Yuma and is a short drive to the airport. This townhouse neighborhood is joined by communal green space and walkways. It is bordered by the Yuma Golf and Country Club to the west and there is a large shopping complex to the east of the community as well as a Bark Park, an on and off-leash dog park. Because it is centrally located in Yuma, access to pet services, pet stores, and veterinary care is easily reached in a short trip by vehicle.
If you and your dog live in Casa De Encanto you will experience hot, dry weather most of the year. The temperature exceeds 90 degrees Fahrenheit for 175 days a year on average, with very little precipitation. The temperature rarely dips below freezing, occurring very infrequently and only in some years. If you plan on waking with your dog in Casa de Encanto you may want to go early in the day, or later in the evening when the temperature cools off a little and is more hospitable for dog walking.
This residential neighborhood is comprised of townhouses and associated communal areas and recreational facilities. Streets do not have sidewalks for walking, so when walking your dog on the street watch out for vehicles and always walk on the left side facing traffic. The townhouses are connected by a communal green space with walkways and there is a fenced pool and recreation area for the townhomes. There are some large palm trees in the community, adding to its character. The area is flat and walking this neighborhood with your pooch should not be strenuous, but be aware that pavement on hot days in Yuma quickly becomes dangerous for tender doggy feet. You may need to keep your dog on green areas or boulevards or provide doggy footwear to provide protection from hot pavement. Although the townhouse complex features uniform architecture, nearby homes to the east and the golf course to the west provide some varied terrain and architecture that provides interest when walking in this area and nearby shopping and the local dog park provide a great walking destination.
Active small dogs and larger dogs will want to take advantage of the surrounding neighborhoods. A residential area to the east features larger yard spaces, landscaping, and homes and connects to the Bark Park. The Bark Park is a 3.35-acre dog park with on and off-leash areas. The park features a maintained trail and agility obstacles. A drinking fountain and doggie waste disposal facilities are provided. Owners are requested to clean up after their pets and dispose of waste in the receptacles provided. Because of the desert climate in Yuma, greenspaces feature desert plants that can survive in arid conditions and recreational areas often feature desert-friendly landscaping.
