Indigo Pines Condo was built over a period of years starting in 1988 and ending with the last building being completed in 1993. The "Pines" are located on Williamson Blvd. and are close to I-95, International Speedway Blvd., and many local business parks. Living here also puts you within a short drive of the Daytona International Speedway, Volusia Mall, and the Halifax Health Medical Center.
The are several excellent restaurants nearby and you are only a 15 to 20-minute drive from the beach with 23 miles of glorious sand for you and Fido to go for walks on. Speaking of the beach, with summer temperatures in the 90s and winters in the 50s, you won't find many days when the two of you can't get out and go for your daily walks. However, in the summer, you should consider taking your walks early in the morning before things start heating up.
The terrain here is flat and carefully landscaped, complete with a small lake in the middle of the complex. Here in the Indigo Pines community, there are several such neighborhoods including those just across Dunn Avenue in the park at Indigo Pines alongside the golf course. While you may not be able to walk on the course itself, you can use the various residential blocks to add distance and interest to your walks.
There are some walkways and grassy areas as well as a large area of woods nearby. You can use these spaces to add a little variety to your hikes and enjoy walking in the woods and shade.
One thing you must keep in mind is that during the summer months, the pavement can become hot enough to burn Fido's paws. The best way to avoid this is to make sure you take your walks early in the morning before things have a chance to heat up.
The condos do have some small areas of grass between the individual units and a much larger one surrounding the lake in the middle of the neighborhood. Along with this, there are a couple of small sections of woods with trails running through them nearby.
If you are looking for a dog park with room for Fido to run, the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society is a ten-minute drive to the north. The park offers separate fenced-in sections for large and small dogs so they can play without getting hurt. There are water fountains in both sections and plenty of shady seating for you to enjoy while your pup goes off and plays.
If you are looking for somewhere to go hiking, the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area covers over 30,000 acres and offers miles of trails for you to wander along in search of local wildlife and some extra exercise.
