Century Woods is a planned community of single-family homes just south of the New Smyrna Beach Golf Course. The neighborhood consists of short streets and cul-de-sacs, complete with sidewalks for you to use for your daily walks. When you are ready to go out for a meal, you are less than ten minutes from several fast-food restaurants along with many of the top restaurants in town. The same applies to pet supply stores and the beach. The nearest dog-park is only fifteen minutes away and offers a shady place to sit while your pup plays.
Summers here are incredible with daily temperatures in the low 90s. Winters aren't too unpleasant either with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. No matter what time of year it happens to be, you can count on being able to take your canine companion for their daily walks on just about every day of the year.
The terrain here is much like you would expect in any planned community. The ground was flat already, but the bulldozers seem to have made it even flatter and the central street loops around with several cul-de-sacs shooting off in all directions. All of the streets have sidewalks for you to make good use of.
If walking around Century Woods does not provide enough distance or you are getting bored with it, there are several other neighborhoods nearby for you to explore. These neighborhoods provide some nice grassy spaces between the homes and along each street. The looping streets make it a bit difficult to find your way around, but Halleck Street and Enterprise Avenue can help when trying to determine where you are.
A copse of woods to the west may seem a tempting place to venture, but the vegetation may be a bit too thick to comfortably navigate.
The nearest and largest green space is one that you and your pooch are not welcome to visit. This is the New Smyrna Beach Municipal Golf Course. Thankfully, a little to the west are Otter Park North and South, two halves of the same park cut in half by the New Smyrna Beach Multi-Use Trail. The park offers large areas of woods and nature trails for you and your pup to wander around on and a trail that will take you all the way around the lake in the northern half of the park.
If you decide to venture a little to the east, you'll come across Pettis Park. While this area is small, it does provide some open fields, tennis courts, basketball hoops, and a picnic area to enjoy with the family. While it is a few streets away from the Century Woods area, it may very well be worth the trip.
