Fremont Court consists of a single street next to Bethune Point Park, the wastewater treatment plant, and the Halifax River. Although there are only a few single-family homes on the west end of the street, it's still a nice place to live. You are close to a wide array of restaurants, both here on the mainland.
One of best parts of living here with a dog is that you are living right next to a park where you can take your dog out for a few minutes of play time. If you want more parks or places to shop, you will have to drive to the nearest pet shop.
Summers in Daytona make dealing with B-52 size mosquitoes bearable as the temperatures are in the 90s. Winters are an even better experience with January temperatures in the upper 40s. You'll never have to worry about snow in this area either!
The terrain here is much like the rest of town in that it is flat and offers very little in the way of a challenging walk. When it comes to finding ways to make walking in this type of terrain more interesting, you'll have to put your thinking cap on.
For instance, you can walk north on S. Beach St. and then take the path that leads all the way around the Halifax Harbor Marina to where the offices are located. This is a nice long walk, but one that takes you out to where you can watch the boats cruising by on the river.
Remember, especially in the summer months, that the higher the temperature is, the hotter the pavement will become. Take your summer walks in the early morning while the pavement is still cool enough for your dog to walk on without suffering from any discomfort or burns.
The advantage of living in Fremont Court is that you are right next door to Bethune Point Park, a nice open area with three athletic fields and plenty of grass. Just remember that your pup must be on a leash.
However, if you want a large area of green space to hike in, you need to pack everyone in the car and head down International Highway US-92 to the Tiger Bay State Forest and the Tomoka Wildlife Management Area. These areas are open to the public and have miles of trails available for horseback riding, biking, and hiking with your dog at your side. While you are strolling along, be sure to keep an eye out for the local wildlife. On any given day, you might see a black bear or even a gator sunning itself on the trails. Give them a wide berth as they do not like to be disturbed and can become aggressive!
