The Cambridge Lawns Historic neighborhood can be found in South Miami and homes to large and more expensive homes. The yards are more substantial than average and the entire community abuts a waterway. For those who have dogs, the area lacks any type of sidewalks, meaning that you and Rosie must walk on the street. Depending on where you live in the community, the nearest dog-friendly parks and pet supply stores are a bit of a drive. The same applies to restaurants as this is very much a residential community with very little in it beyond houses, the one park, and a waterway running from north to south.
The climate here is amazingly mild with the average temperature in the winters a balmy 68°, while summers are in the mid-80s. The area is considered at high risk of hurricanes and severe storms that can make a living here a bit risky depending on the year.
The terrain here is a blend of large homes with big yards, streets, and a small waterway. Beyond this, it's pretty flat and unremarkable. You can view this type of terrain as dull and uninteresting or as a new way to challenge both you and Rosie to find new ways to put some excitement back into your strolls.
There is only one tiny park in the community, Brewer Park, with a small area of grass for your pup to run around. So with this in mind, your walks might need to take a different direction such as finding a large park to take your walks in or creating interesting walking patterns out of the blocks around your house. The most significant thing to keep in mind is that going out for walks is just as crucial for you as it is Rosie, so make sure you get out there and do so!
Beyond the tiny park at the north end of the community, there is little else in the way of green spaces for you and Rosie to enjoy. To find anything in the form of a large, natural area to walk and play in, you and Rosie are going to have to go for a ride in the car.
The nearest park of any size is just off SW 40th and SW 82nd Ave. Tropical Park is a very large park that, along with being home to the Miami-Dade Field and Track team, has acres of grass to run around on. Better yet, the park also has a structured off-leash dog park that is split into separate areas for large and small dogs. Along with this, the park also offers a trail running all the way around the park for you and Rosie to take a slow walk along while you are taking in the scenery!
