River One Place condominiums started life in 1973 as apartments. It wasn't until 1981 that the buildings were turned into condos. The building lies on the banks of the Intracoastal Waterways and offers tenants a spectacular view. Along with a panoramic view, the condos are also dog-friendly, allowing dogs up to 20 pounds. Not only is there plenty of wide open grass around the south and west sides of the building for you and your pup to run around on, but there is also a trail running along the banks of the waterway for you to explore. Pet grooming, pet supply stores, and dog-friendly parks are all within driving distance. Of course, there is the beach which is a five-minute drive or a 15-minute walk to the east. The beach offers endless miles of sand and water to have fun and play in on a daily basis!
The terrain or grounds around the River One Place condominium are flat except for the riverbank, which is sloped, but not enough to make walking up and down very strenuous. The largest percentage of the grounds around the condo building is well-kept grass. There is also a pool and tennis courts for the residents to enjoy. The grounds around the building can provide you with all the room you need to take your smaller dog for a walk, but it won't exactly be much of a challenge for either of you. If you want hikes that are going to be a lot more challenging, consider walking on the beach! The terrain runs from soft sand that can be very challenging to walk in and hard, wet sand that is easier to walk in. This can be more like walking on the sidewalk, allowing you to choose your challenge and vary it with every walk.
One of the beautiful things about the older apartments and condominiums in Daytona Beach is that most were built with plenty of open space between them. River Place One used this space to create spacious areas of lawn and create the perfect spot for you and your pup to get in a little play time together. Beyond the condos, however, the story changes a bit and the next dog-friendly green space in the area is the beach. While not technically green in the real sense of the word, the beaches here do offer you and your dog miles of undulating dunes, wetlands, and, of course, the Atlantic Ocean for the two of you to explore.
If you are looking for a green space to play in, there are trails and grass to play on at the Halifax Harbor Marina. The paths lead all the way around the marina and are open to anyone.
