The Canalview Condos are located on South Nova Road and close to where it intersects with Dunlawton Avenue. Living here puts you close to essential amenities, including a Publix grocery store where you can pick up dog food for your pup! The rest of the area is given over to strip malls filled with a variety of stores and places for you and your family to grab a bite to eat.
Living here not only puts you close to the center of town, but it also puts you within a short drive of several green spaces such as the beach where you can take your dog out for long walks in the fresh air.
For those who work out of town, the I-95 interchange is only a ten-minute drive to the west on Dunlawton Avenue. From here, you can commute north to places like Daytona Beach, south to the Cape, or take the short trip north to the I-4 interchange which you can then take into Orlando.
Nova Road is one of the main north-south routes through Ormond Beach and to New Smyrna Beach. As you can imagine, it's a bustling highway from early in the morning until very late into the evening. Along with this, traffic increases significantly during the morning and evening rush hours. Thankfully, there are several neighborhoods to the east where you and your dog can go for your daily walks.
Keep in mind that not all the streets around here have sidewalks, leaving the two of you no choice but to take your walks on the roads themselves. Keep an eye out for passing vehicles to ensure that you and your pup stay out of the way of oncoming traffic.
The ground here is mostly flat, so the best way to build muscles and endurance is to walk as many blocks as the two of you can handle and add more on a regular basis.
The condos have a large area of grass and trees behind them for you and your dog to play around on. There is also a small lake on the premises to walk around. To the north and just off of Herbert Street is Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens, a vast area of botanical gardens, nature trails, and dinosaur statues! The gardens are also home to the ruins of a 19th Century plantation and former sugar mill. Enjoy the trails and take a break on the many benches provided for you throughout the park.
If you don't mind going for a short drive, the Seemore Memorial Dog Park is less than ten minutes away. The park offers two large fenced-in sections, each with its own watering station for the dogs and plenty of benches in the shade for their owners to relax in while their playful pups run around with each other.
