Lost Creek is surrounded by natural area and undeveloped land, giving it a country feel. There are three large schools to the east of Lost Creek that provide schooling and recreational areas for residents. Jacksonville has lots of sunny days, more than the national average, however, it also gets more than its share of rainfall, so when it rains it pours! Be aware of the weather and bring a raincoat along on overcast days, just in case, so you and your pooch don't get soaked by an unexpected deluge. However, usually you can expect sunny, warm days in Jacksonville; winters are relatively mild and summers are hot!
The community is built on some gently sloping terrain and there are some inclines when walking. Be prepared for a little bit of a climb depending on your direction and remember what goes up, must come down. A walk around this area is great for giving your dog a little bit of exercise and will necessitate a little bit of climbing, so wear good shoes.
A short drive to the southeast in Jacksonville is the Jacksonville Dog Park, if you are looking for an opportunity to socialize with other owners and dogs in a safe, off-leash, fenced area. This dog park is maintained by the City of Jacksonville and provides facilities for cleaning up after your dog, a water station, and separate areas for large and small dogs.
