Halifax Mobile Estates is one neighborhood in a much larger mobile home community sitting between Pat Helen Drive and Spruce Creek Road. The homes here range in age and are either very well taken care of or shown a little less love. Like most mobile home communities, you will find a very diverse range of people who all keep an eye out for each other to help keep the neighborhood clean and safe.
From here, you are minutes from the main shopping area of town on Dunlawton Avenue. Here, you will find major stores like Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's, Publix, and plenty of shopping centers with stores, salons, and restaurants.
Living here puts you a three-minute drive from the All Children's Park and Seemore Memorial Dog Park. If the beach is more to your taste, you and the entire family can be parked on the sand and ready to go in a little over ten minutes.
Within the boundaries of the neighborhood, the streets tend to be busy most of the day with rush hours in the morning and evening being the worst. Some of the roads have sidewalks, while others don't, which puts you in the position of having to keep an eye on traffic. At the same time, you can keep your pup a little safer by using a short leash that always allows you to maintain complete control.
Keep in mind that this is a family neighborhood, which means that you are likely to encounter local children at play. While most kids are respectful when it comes to people taking their dogs for walks, this doesn't mean they won't still come darting up asking to pet the pooch. If both you and your dog are okay with kids saying hello, the best thing you can do is teach them to ask before getting too close keep your dog on a short leash for safety.
There isn't much in the way of usable green space within Halifax Mobile Estates or within walking distance. However, if you don't mind a short drive, the All Children's Park and Seemore Memorial Dog Park are less than five minutes to the south. The dog park covers a full acre and is fenced-off into three sections. Each area has a place for your dog to get a drink and benches in the shade for you to relax on.
If you are up for a slightly longer drive, pop your dog in the car and head over to the beach. You can park on the sand, bust out a picnic, and be prepared to take your four-legged friend for a long walk along the dunes, enjoying the fresh ocean air and sunshine. Be sure you take advantage the warm coastal waters! They will help keep the fleas at bay and cool you off after a long walk.
