If ever there was an odd name for a neighborhood, The Potato Patch should be among the contenders. Yet, this is a family-oriented community of single-family homes with a nice large lake sitting in the middle of it. With an Atlantic Animal Hospital for a neighbor, should anything happen to your pup, treatment is right next door along with Daytona's Endless Summer Campground.
With South Nova Road just to the east, there are a few restaurants nearby and your home is less than ten minutes away from the shops, stores, and strip malls along Dunlawton Avenue. Along this road, you should be able to find everything you need to keep your family and your pampered pooch happy.
There are several parks and other forms of green space nearby, most of which you and your pup have to drive to. Luckily, you will find the drive more than worth the time and effort spent as they offer you a place to get out and enjoy the fresh air.
Living next door to a campground does come with its share of noise and nuisance as well as the day to day hustle and bustle that comes with living in a family neighborhood. This means morning and evening rush hour traffic and lots of kids running around at all times of year.
Don't let the kids scare you away from being able to take your dog out for walks. You should never take your dog out for walks around children using anything other than a short walking leash. This type of leash gives you the kind of control needed to keep your pup safe.
Second and, perhaps most importantly of all, it's okay to tell kids to leave your pooch alone! Third, try walking in areas where you aren't as likely to see as many. These three things alone may help the two of you to enjoy a more fulfilling walk together in this area.
Half the trick in living here is trying to find a park or some other form of "green space" for you and your dog to enjoy. The good news is that you are just across South Nova Road from Reed Canal Park. The park offers a vast area of woods to hike through and a large lake to walk around. Once you get past this, the rest of the park is given over to a massive area of grass where the two of you can run around and play to your heart's' content.
A short car ride to the east will have you parking on the beach and ready to get out there and enjoy some fun in the sun. You can hike for miles in either direction using the dry sand to work your leg muscles and then have fun playing in the surf and strolling along the water's edge all the way back to your car at the end of the day.
