Magnolia Grove is a large mobile home community with a grove of magnolia trees splitting the community into one large and one smaller section sandwiched in the corner of South Nova Road and Madeline Avenue. Like most mobile home communities, the homes here are packed very closely together, leaving minimal room for your dog to run around between the homes. The magnolia grove in the middle adds an area where you and your dog may be able to wander around in!
Whether you are on either South Nova Road or Madeline Avenue, you have equidistant access to both the shops along Beville Road in South Daytona or those along both sides of Dunlawton Avenue in Port Orange. On Dunlawton, there are several big box retailers such as Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowe's. There is a Pet Supermarket, a Petco, and a Publix Supermarket along with dozens of local stores and businesses for you and your family to shop in.
Magnolia Grove is a tight-knit working community and, as such, you can expect to see plenty of traffic during the morning and afternoon rush hours. In any family residential area, you will be dealing with quite a few pedestrians. This could be anything from moms with strollers, to small toddlers, or even teenagers drifting around in the area.
Dealing with vehicular traffic is easy! You'll want to not take your dog out for walks when the traffic is at its heaviest. Using a short leash will help you maintain better control and give your dog a sense of security that allows them to stay relaxed. A short leash will also help keep your dog under control when pedestrians pass you by.
Luckily, the neighborhood has flat terrain and sidewalks which make it easy to get around without having to be in the way of oncoming vehicles.
The nearest green space is the grove of magnolia trees that separates the two sections of the community. You and your dog should be able to find any number of trails running through the grove to hike along out of the glaring sunshine.
On the east side of South Nova Road is Reed Canal Park. You and your dog will find a vast open field to play in and run about. There is a large lake you can hike around and a small area of woods to explore. This is a great place to take your dog out for walks and play time!
If you want a place to take your dog where leashes are not required, the Seemore Memorial Dog Park is a ten to fifteen-minute drive to the south. This one-acre park is divided into three sections with one for special needs pups! Each section has a watering station and plenty of benches in the shade for you to relax on.
