Rosella Park is a neighborhood of single-family homes across US 92 from Daytona State College and right next door to Tuscawilla Park. Those with middle and high school age children will like the fact that Campbell Middle School and Mainland High School are with a few blocks. For those who love to shop, the Volusia Mall is across the street and, if you are into NASCAR, you can hear the races loud and clear or be one of the first in line.
If you like to eat out, you won't be disappointed with the selection of restaurants on this side of Daytona and over on the beachside. Beachside Daytona is the perfect place for the clubber with various nightclubs along the beach to choose from.
As for the summer weather, you can't beat 90 degrees all summer long. On the other hand, the winters are quite short and mild with January daytime lows in the 45 to 55-degree range.
For a community that is so centrally located, this one is surprisingly suburban with large yards, lots of shade trees, and amenities nearby. This being said, the ground itself is on the flat and level side which might make creating challenging walks for your pup pretty tough if they are an athletic sort.
But, if your dog is still young, is an aging senior, or has a spare tire growing around their waist, the flat ground can be beneficial. Level ground presents far less stress on things like the pads on their paws and their shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee joints. You can use this type of ground to slowly increase the amount of exercise your pooch gets on a daily basis until they are capable of going for longer distances. Long walks done right can be beneficial to even the healthiest of dogs and can help maintain the health of older dogs!
One of the nice things about living in Rosella Park is that you are right next door to the Daytona Beach Zipline Adventure and Tuscawilla Park. While your dog can't ride the zipline, there is plenty of room on the 65-pin disc golf course and in the park to romp around in the shade.
However, if you want natural space with plenty of room to roam, you can head over to the beachside. On the World's' Most Famous Beach, you can run, jog, and walk for as many miles to the north or south as you can handle.
Be sure you check the temperature of the soft sand before expecting your pup to walk in it. Like pavement, sand can reach temperatures that are high enough to burn sensitive paws, especially when the soft sand tends to be difficult to walk in to begin with. Exercise caution on hot days to keep your pooch comfortable and safe.
