Although this can be very inconvenient for some residents who have to go out of their way to get what their pup needs, there are a few very nice local options that ease the burden a bit for some. PetSmart and Petco Animal Supplies are both really great to have around because they ease the burden substantially by providing grooming, check ups, training, and a well stocked pet supply area.
There are also slightly more hilly areas in this region largely due to the lake. However, in general, the area is still very flat and, for those who like the flat terrain, it is still very easy to find several options that keep you on it. This area has a great array of options for pet walkers. Residents have the freedom to go anywhere from down by the lake to just staying in the neighborhood.
One of the largest neighborhood parks in the area is Clarence Thompson Park. Although it only has two playgrounds, a picnic area, a practice field, and a parking lot, the amount of open green space is incredible and you and your dog will absolutely love it.
River Legacy Park and River Legacy Park East are both great ways to view the beautiful Lake Viridian. They also house miles of hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, a hands-on science center, a large forest, and a playground. A final location worth mentioning is the very cool and modern Richard Greene Linear Park.
