Consisting of a few single-family homes, Bungalow Park sits a block off of N Ridgewood Avenue and along Taylor Avenue. Living here puts you a couple of blocks from the Halifax River and bridges over to the beachside.
The area is business heavy, but there are still places for you to walk. There are several restaurants nearby, but if you want the best selection of restaurants and nightclubs in town, you have to go over to the beachside. Pet supply stores are nearby, but you will have to drive to them.
Sun lovers will enjoy living here as it shines at least 230 days each year. In the summer, the temperatures can reach 90 to 100 degrees with extremely high levels of humidity. The winters offer moderate temperatures, some rain, and maybe even a little overnight frost, but you can spend Christmas Day on the beach if you want to in most years.
The terrain here is suburban with some sidewalks and plenty of residential blocks for you to explore. If you don't mind walking a little to the east, there is a walking trail along the west bank of the Halifax River that you can enjoy hiking along.
Keep in mind that your pooch likes to explore more with their nose than they do with their eyes. The more variety you can build into your daily walks, the more your dog's curiosity will be sated. However, if your pup is just getting started walking on paved surfaces, you do need to give the pads under them some time to get used to the pavement. This means taking short walks at first and slowly building up to longer distances. Be sure to check your dog's paw pads from time to time for damage, even long after they have become used to walking on pavement. Dirt and debris can easily cause discomfort.
There is not much in the way of green space living in this part of Daytona. But there are plenty of green spaces to play in if you don't mind taking a bit of a drive.
First, there is the beach to the east where you can walk for miles in both directions enjoying the sand, surf, and amazingly fresh ocean air. It will be good for both of you and you can have fun playing in the surf! Take a drive to the north and there you will find Bulow State Park and Tomoka State Park, offering almost 8,000 acres of trails and forest for you to explore, including the ancient Timucuan Indian Village of Nocoroco.
Finally, a trip to the west will take you to the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area and Tiger Bay State Forest where you can spend hours, if not days, wandering along the many trails running through over 30,000 acres of cypress swamps, pine-palmettos, and more.
