Located on the northern boundaries of the LPGA Golf Course, Lionspaw is a part of the planned communities built here as part of the overall neighborhood. The homes here are modest single-family homes built into small communities where you have plenty of room to take walks together.
While living here does put you close to the Daytona Auto Mall, it does leave you a little way out from places to eat, pet supply stores, and shopping. But this is a small price to pay for the peace that comes with living next to the golf course.
If you like the beach, it's only a fifteen-minute drive from home and, with 230 days of sunshine, the coast makes a good place to take your pooch for a walk. Summers here run in the 90-degree range for weeks at a time with blue skies that seem to go on forever and a sun that never stops shining!
The terrain in Lionspaw is a bit of a mix. Part of it is paved sidewalks that you and Fido can use to walk around your own small part of the greater community and part of the area consists of trails running through the undeveloped tracts of land.
Getting plenty of healthy exercise shouldn't be a problem here as you can follow the roads and sidewalks that can take you to every one of the neighborhoods around the golf course. Or, if you prefer, you can hit the trails.
The most important thing to remember is that during the summer months, you'll want to keep a close eye on the temperature of any paved surface you expect Fido to use. If the surface is too hot for you to keep your hand on it for at least ten seconds, don't expect your pup to walk on it as it can easily cause burns.
While living on the outskirts of a golf course might lead you to think you have a built-in green space where you and Fido can romp and walk to your heart's content, you would be wrong! Dogs are not generally welcome on the golf course for maintenance and cleanliness reasons.
However, living here does put you within a five-minute drive of the Community Dog Park at the Halifax Humane Society. This park offers fenced-in sections for both large and small dogs to enjoy. Along with this, each section has agility obstacles for the dogs to play on, toys to play with, and water fountains in both sections to keep everyone nice and hydrated. There are several shady places for the humans to sit while their canine companions go about having a good time together. Just remember to clean up after your pup to be courteous to others around you!
