Fountain Lake is an aptly-named relatively new community of single-family homes in the outskirts of town along Jimmy Ann Dr. The area offers two lakes and a small copse of woods for you and your dog to walk around and plenty of sidewalks.
To the west, there are even more areas of woods the two of you can probably get away with playing around in. Living out here brings with it plenty of peace and quiet, but at the same time, it does mean you will have to drive to find good places to eat, pet supply stores, and even dog parks. But when you live in the Greater Daytona Beach area, nothing is that far of a drive away.
One of the best things about living here is the weather. With over 230 days of sunshine, no snow, and temperatures in January that are warm enough to still go walking on the beach, you can’t beat it!
The terrain here is a blend of woods and flat ground. All of the communities surrounding Fountain Lake are laid out grid-style, making it very easy to create plenty of different walking routes. Keep in mind while you use your eyes to explore new areas, your pup uses their nose. The more you can take them walking around new blocks, the happier they will be to go out for walks with you!
You might find the woods around you have a few trails for the two of you to go walking in during the day, but you might want to stay out of them at night when the local critters are out and about. One last thing to remember is to take your walks very early in the morning during the hotter months of the year. This will help you avoid burning your dog's paw pads on the hot pavement!
Those who live in Fountain Lake have plenty of green space around them. The lakes and large areas of grass are perfect for short playtimes! So are the woods around the area.
You also live close to the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society. The park offers two fenced-in sections for breeds of different sizes. Each section has water fountains for both canines and humans and the park also features places for you to sit in the shade.
Keep going out past the dog park and you'll end up at the massive Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and Tiger Bay State Forest. Both offer you miles of trails to hike along as you look for hundreds of different animals and birds who call the area their home. You might see a mama bear and her cubs ambling across the trail or maybe a bald eagle soaring overhead as the two of you hike along!
