Springdale is a small community of single-family homes, many of which have their own pools. There are plenty of sidewalks for you and your dog to roam around on. The good news is that these sidewalks are separated from the streets by wide strips of grass. Considering summer temperatures can hit the mid-90s and the sidewalks can reach 120°F, your pup needs these strips of grass to protect their paws. When the sidewalks and streets get this hot, the pads on your dog's feet can blister and burn in seconds. In reality, you should be taking them for a walk early in the morning, long before the sun has a chance to turn the sidewalks into something akin to molten lava.
There are dog-friendly parks, pet stores, groomers, and a pet hospital all within driving distance and a significant green space running alongside the community to walk in that runs through a large section of this part of Clearwater.
The terrain here is exceptionally flat which probably doesn't present you and your pup with much of a challenge when it comes to going for a walk. Keep in mind that most walks are not just so your pup can go potty, they are also supposed to be a good source of exercise. When the ground is flat, it doesn't present much of a challenge for you or your pooch. The best news is that there is a greenway running past the community that actually goes for several miles running north and south. The only way to make walking on flat ground challenging is to find new ways to explore the area. Choose different blocks to walk around or go north on the greenway one day and south the next. When you have limited green spaces close by to work with, you have to make the most of what you have!
As stated above, there is a beautiful wide greenway running right next to the community that is open for you and your dog to walk on. This greenway starts on the north side of Curlew Rd. and runs all the way down to Enterprise Rd. E. If this doesn't give you enough space to enjoy your walk, you may want to think about going over to the coast where you will find Honeymoon Island State Park and Caladesi Island State Park. Both parks have plenty of trails for the two of you to tackle. Along with trails to explore, there are miles of beaches both in the state parks and back over on the mainland side. If you walk on the wet sand, it does little more than cushion your steps, making the walk more enjoyable for both of you and providing another area for you to get your daily exercise into your routine.
