The small neighborhood of Regina Myra sits on Washington Avenue, three blocks south of West King Street and to the west of the FEC railroad tracks. The area is typical of most of the residential areas in town in that the yards are large and offer plenty of room to raise a family and the family dog. While the railroad tracks might run nearby, FEC doesn't run a lot of traffic this way and you get used to the noise quickly.
West King Street is home to a vast selection of automobile dealers, but not much in the way of grocery stores to keep everyone well-fed. The nearest Publix supermarket is less than ten minutes south on South Cocoa Boulevard and carries a range of premium dog foods. Additionally, there is a Walmart Supercenter on Clearlake Road, ten minutes to the north. Between these two stores and the Merritt Island Mall, you should have no problem finding places to take the family out for a day of shopping.
Regina Myra is a residential community with lots of sidewalks for you and your pooch to use for your daily walks. Traffic during the day is modest, at best, with the typically heavy traffic during the daily rush hours. Don't forget the school buses running all over the place during the school year as they only add to the traffic! Thankfully, the sidewalks help provide you with a safe place to walk, providing you keep your dog on a leash.
The only real problem with walking during the middle of the day here is that there is a distinct lack of shade. The best time of day to take your dog out for long daily walks is during the early morning before rush hour begins. Not only is the air cooler and the traffic much less, but the pavement will be cold to the touch, which is much better for the pads on the bottom of your dog's paws.
There is a surprising amount of green space in the area, starting with a large area of grass running near the house. The area has plenty of room to run and a few shade trees. One thing to keep in mind is that you should never take your dog for walks along the railroad tracks. Not only is this dangerous, but it is also illegal as land on both sides of the track is private property.
If you take West King Street to the causeway, you will arrive at the combination of Taylor, Cocoa Riverfront, and Lee Werner Parks, as well as the Cocoa Civic Center. Between all three parks, there are playgrounds, live entertainment during the summer, a public boat ramp, and large areas of grass for you and your pup to play around on. The park is host to a multitude of events throughout the year. Some are dog-friendly, while others are not. Be sure you check before taking your dog with you!
