Schulte Park is a small community located in the Daytona Beach Shores area on the peninsula, tucked between the Halifax River and the Atlantic Ocean. The homes here are mostly modest, older 3-bedroom single-family houses located in a quiet, well-kept community. The nearest dog-friendly parks and pet stores are a bit of a drive, but there are a couple of dog-friendly parks closer in and, of course, there is always the beach in areas where dogs are permitted. As for going out to eat, there are several different types of restaurants along the A1A that are well-worth investigating.
While parts of this area were heavily impacted by the recent hurricanes, most of the damage has been repaired, but it has left behind a number of empty lots along the beach. These areas may have some lingering debris left over, so you may want to exercise caution when traveling along these spaces.
Like most of the peninsula, Schulte Park is mostly flat with a slight slope towards the ocean, but even that is hardly noticeable. With no sidewalks in the residential area, you and Fido will have to use the streets. This situation leads to two very obvious problems. First, you have to be constantly aware of traffic as there tends to be quite a bit of it. Second, once the outside temperatures reach in the mid-70s, the pavement temperatures can hit the 120s which can be hot enough to burn your pup's paws. What this means is that during the hotter months of the year, you need to plan your walks for early morning before the sun has had a chance to superheat everything its rays touch. The good news is that from October to May, the temperatures are much more bearable with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s.
The neighborhood itself has larger yards and plenty of trees, but nothing in the way of parks to take your pup to for some play time. There are some small parks to the south with just enough grass for you and Fido to romp around on, but if you want the room to play and explore, hop in the car and go south for a few miles down to the Ponce Inlet. Here, you and your pup can explore the trails, open areas, and have access to both the beach and the Halifax River via the Ponce Preserve East Parking. Ponce Preserve covers over 41 acres and stretches from the river to the ocean. In the heart of the park sits the Green Mound State Archeological Site. The trail here runs for 1.6 miles with sharp climbs and steep dips that take you on a journey under a spectacular canopy of local coastal scrub.
