Morganton is a metropolitan city 50 miles east of Asheville, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Other than being high in elevation, the town is also high in heritage thanks to the archeological site in-town known as the Mississippian Culture Chiefdom, which was occupied in 1400 AD to 1600 AD. Today though, Morganton thrives not only with humans, but with their four-legged residents too, and offers six veterinarians to keep them healthy.

Morganton has dedicated a lot of space to the pups in town, like the Bethel Bark Park inside Bethel Park. The bark park is a great place to bring your pup, thanks to the large space that's completely fenced-in, separate area for small pooches, and double-gated entrances. There's even clean-up stations, two covered shelters, picnic tables, trash bins, and benches. The rest of Bethel Park is also dog-friendly, but pups must remain on a leash outside the park. Here, pups can enjoy a .8-mile paved walkway, tennis and basketball courts, and nighttime lights.

Catawba Meadows Park is one of the larger public spaces in Morganton, expanding over 230 acres along the Rhodhiss River. This dog-friendly park welcomes leashed pups and humans to enjoy amenities like open fields, fishing areas, lighted baseball and tennis courts, picnic shelters, paved walkways, restrooms, water fountains, benches, and clean-up stations.

Morganton will provide water sports, outdoor activities and lots of love for you and Fido to enjoy while in town.
