Springwood Square is a small townhome community located on South Nova Road near the Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens and Daytona's Endless Summer Campground. The homes sit near the heavily wooded gardens and are surrounded by shade trees that help keep the sun at bay during the hot summers in Florida.
As the name suggests, the townhouses are set around a "square loop" road that helps to keep traffic down to a dull roar during the days. Luckily, you are close to South Nova Road which you can use to get to local grocery stores, pet supply stores, and a great selection of both local and chain restaurants for you and the family to check out.
For those who want more than just a tiny patch of grass to walk on, there are several places including parks, nature preserves, and the beach where the two of you can go to enjoy a little fresh air and Florida sunshine.
Life inside of the community tends to be reasonably quiet with a small amount of traffic during morning and evening rush hours. Beyond this, you, your dog, and your kids should feel safe within the community, including the shaded areas in the middle. However, you also live next door to South Nova which is a four-lane highway and stays pretty busy from early in the morning until late at night. It's definitely not the type of road you and your pup should be walking along!
The ground is flat in the neighborhood, but there are sidewalks with plenty of shade trees for you to use for your daily walks. You can use Jackson Road to the east to add more distance to your walks, but it doesn't have a sidewalk, so you will be sharing the road with cars and other vehicles. Be sure to walk in the grass away from the road and use a short leash to keep your dog safe!
The townhomes themselves are set among large areas of grass and there is a shaded area in the center of the square for you and your pup to enjoy. If you walk the trail running along South Nova to the north, your journey will take you to a lake that you can use to add further fun to your walks.
Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens is just up Old Sugar Mill Road and offers nature trails that take you past the lovingly maintained botanical gardens and under the dense canopy of shade trees. It's a great place to enjoy a walk in the fresh air!
If you follow Jackson Street north to Madeline Avenue, the woods you see on the other side are the beginning of Reed Canal Park. There are nature trails for the two of you to follow, a vast area of grass to play on, and a lake with a walking trail running all the way around it to check out.
