Turnbull Plantation is a small community along Pioneer Trail and across the street from Otter Park North. Living here is ideal to enjoy the peace and quiet while still being close enough to access all the necessary amenities. This is a neighborhood of single-family homes next door to one of the larger mobile home parks in town. For those of you who like to play golf, the New Smyrna Beach Municipal Golf Course is only a few blocks away.
Being across the street from Otter Park gives you and your dog somewhere in the shade to go walking, something you are both sure to appreciate when the summer sun hits its zenith and the temperatures outside are in the high nineties. At the same time, when the winter winds are blowing, the woods offer you and your dog somewhere to walk without being hammered by the cold temperatures coming off the ocean.
Finding places to go walking with your dog is not a problem out here in Turnbull Plantation as even the traffic tends to be relatively quiet most of the time. The houses lay along a single street that forms a loop, perfect for taking your pup out for their daily walks. Thankfully, most of the walk will be on sidewalks, keeping you from having to deal with what little traffic there is.
Unfortunately, there aren't any shade trees to keep the scorching hot Florida sun at bay while you walk. The best thing you can do during the hottest part of the year is to take your pup out for walks early in the morning while things are still nice and cool.
Being across from Otter Park North also offers you plenty of shade trees to walk under and trails to follow. The trees will help keep you cool in the summer and block chilly breezes during the winter months.
Turnbull Plantation is in an area of New Smyrna Beach where there is plenty of green space all around you. To the west is Turnbull Creek where there is space for you and your dog to play on the open space and play in the water. The community itself features large yards and small sections of trees, making it one of the greener communities in the area. However, the best part of living here is the huge park across the street.
The premier parks are Otter Park North and Otter Park South. In the northern park, you and your dog can hike around a small lake or spend time wandering around in the woods on the many trails to be found here. In Otter Park South, the two of you can continue wandering under the dense canopy, walk along Turnbull Creek, and have a good time hiding from the summer sun.
