The Madison Townhomes sit on Madison Avenue, midway between North Atlantic Avenue and the coast. The townhouses have private fenced-in yards and private access. While this is a predominately residential area, many of the homes are used as winter and vacation spots. Most of the streets also have sidewalks running alongside them for you and your dog to use for your daily walks.
Living in this area puts you with walking distance of the Cape Canaveral Baseball Park, Canaveral City Park, and Sandpiper Park complex as well as the Cape Canaveral Volunteer Fire Department. There a few local restaurants and bars you can walk to, but if you need groceries or the other items, it's a short trip south to the West Cocoa Beach Causeway, the central shopping district on this side of the river. If you cross the river into Merritt Island, there is also a Walmart Supercenter and the Merritt Island Mall.
As residential districts go, traffic around the Madison Townhomes is relatively quiet most of the day. There are the morning and evening rush hours to deal with and, during the school year, those noisy yellow buses running through. Having sidewalks with grass berms will make it safer for you and your dog to go for your walks and your pup is sure to appreciate not having to walk on the paved sidewalks all the time. With these walkways following the flat terrain that prevents you from having to hike up or down any steep grades, you should find it fairly easy to get in some light exercise during your strolls.
Being a residential area, you should expect to run across any number of pedestrians who may be venturing to any nearby businesses or residential spaces. Keep this in mind if your pup is not one to enjoy meeting or greeting any of the locals.
It just so happens that you are only one block from the Cape Canaveral Baseball Park, Canaveral City Park, and Sandpiper Park complex. These three parks cover two full city blocks between Monroe and Harrison Avenues. The parks offer two baseball diamonds, walking trails, and plenty of space for you and your dog to run around and get some exercise.
Here in Cape Canaveral, most of the parks have been opened for dogs who are on leashes. Each park has a pet waste bag dispenser and a receptacle to put them in. Be a good pet owner and make use of these to keep the parks clean. They are the only place in town you are allowed to take your dog as the beaches are off limits to them with the exception of service animals. If you want to take your dog along the coast, you'll have to take a short drive to Cocoa Beach.
