Asheville itself is known as a trendy and unique city, sometimes known as the "San Francisco of the East." Known for being home to plenty of local breweries, music venues, and art studios, Asheville is settled near the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination and for good reason!
Asheville is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, so some hills are to be expected while exploring the Five Points neighborhood. The hills are sporadic throughout the area, but many of them are a bit on the steeper side. Just be careful while out walking, particularly if you or your pup have any mobility issues.
The boundaries of Five Points include University Heights and West T. Weaver Boulevard to the north, Merrimon Avenue to the east, Broadway Street and Reed Creek to the south, and Campus Drive to the west.
Other greenways in Five Points are either not open to the public or not public-friendly. These include Greenwood Field, Asheville's Botanical Gardens, and The Laughing Forest.
Thankfully, you have other options! Within walking distance of Five Points you will find Weaver Park, Montford Park, and Castanea Forest Garden. There are a few dog parks within Asheville, but you will likely need to drive to them.
