Lakewood Park is a small community of single-family homes located next to Cedar Highlands Park and Clyde Morris Blvd. This is a very quiet area of town within driving distance of a selection of restaurants. But if it’s the nightlife you crave, the best nightclubs are over on the beachside. These clubs offer a range of live and DJ hosted music to fit most tastes and styles. The Ocean Deck even has an outdoor deck that leads right out onto the beach.
If you are looking for a fenced-in dog park, it's a bit of a drive to the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society. The one thing most dog lovers love about living here is that you can go for walks together on almost any day of the year. However, in the summer when daytime temperatures reach the nineties, try to take your walks early in the morning before things heat up.
The terrain here is very suburban and flat, making it necessary for you to be more creative in how you put your walks with your pup together. While it might be easy to walk around the same block every time, both of you are going to find that doing this can get pretty boring.
One of the good things about living in a carefully planned community is that you have plenty of blocks to choose from in creating your walking routes. The more variety you can build into them, the more enjoyable your walks are going to be.
If Fido is not used to walking on paved surfaces, start with short walks designed to give their paws time to adjust to the texture. Otherwise, they may end up causing some damage and discomfort. The pavement can also reach temperatures hot enough during the summer to burn them severely, so be sure to exercise caution when nevessary.
Living here puts you within walking distance of Cedar Highlands Park. This park offers a small playground for kids and a large wooded area with walking paths you and your pup can explore. It's a nice place to take Fido for a walk in the shade. Unfortunately, the park isn't that big and only offers limited space to play.
If you don't mind taking a little bit of a drive out west, you will find the Community Dog Park built by the Halifax Humane Society. This park offers a fenced in area for both large and small dogs. Each section is equipped with water fountains, agility obstacles, and shady places for you to sit while your pup gets out there and plays with their new-found friends and maybe a few old ones as well. The park is maintained by a team of volunteers, so please do your part and clean up after your pup!
