You can find Watson Park on Dr. Mary Mcleod Bethune Drive, close to Bethune Cookman University and the Mary Mcleod Bethune Performing Arts Center. The homes here are mostly single-family older homes in a well-kept neighborhood.
For those of you who like to dine out, living here puts you at the center of all the best restaurants in town. Some are here on the mainland side like the Chart House while others like Anna's Trattoria Italian are over on the beachside. If you like to get out and have a drink, the Mai Tai Bar and Ocean Deck are great places to check out.
During the summer months, the evenings are a very comfortable 70 degrees, supplying perfect temperatures for evening outings. While the oceanside decks of the nearby clubs might be closed in the winter, with temperatures in the 50s, you and your pup should have no problem being able to get out and go for walks.
The terrain here is a blend of residential blocks, sidewalks, and the occasional empty lot. The ground itself is very flat and offers little in the way of resistance for you and your pup to enjoy. The only way you are going get any serious exercise is going to be supplementing distance for hills.
Thankfully, living here puts you in the middle of a large residential area with plenty of blocks for the two of you to walk around. Walking on cement, however, means making your pup walk on a surface that acts like sandpaper. With each step they take, the concrete rubs on their paw pads. If you push them to go too far, too fast, the skin on their pads can be worn away, leading to uncomfortable damage that can make walking difficult. Stick to short walks at first and check those paws after every walk for signs that you need to slow down.
Beyond the odd vacant lot, the nearest green space is Cypress Park over on George W. Engram Blvd. Although small in size, the park does offer a few walking and jogging trails for the two of you to explore with wide-open grassy areas. Like many parks in Daytona, you must keep your pup on a leash and carry your own bags to clean up after them.
If you don't mind driving a little further, you can take Fido and the rest of the family over to Tuscawilla Park on Orange Ave as there is more to do here. The park is home to a massive 65-pin disc golf course with lots of ditches, water hazards, and tall trees. It is also home to Daytona Beach Zipline Adventures, a fun activity for everyone in the family except your pup. The park, however, has plenty of nature trails for the two of you to walk on under the shade of the forest.
