Greenwood’s motto is “There’s always something blooming,” which is an appropriate, considering it’s home to a beautiful lake, topiary gardening, and a flourishing food scene. Greenwood is an economic center for the Upstate, so there is always something to do for the local pupulation. Five veterinary hospitals take care of the city’s furry locals. In addition to the stationary clinics, there are two traveling vets that serve the county.
With activities such as swimming, hiking, and kayaking, the Greenwood State Park is sure to keep any outdoorsy pooch busy year-round. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes here, and bait can be purchased at all surrounding gas stations. The abundance of catfish, perch, and crappie found here ensures there is always something to catch. The dog-friendly campground has everything you need to keep you and your pooch comfortable during your stay. Amenities for the 125 paved sites include water and power hookups, restrooms, and hot showers.
Opened in 2014 as part of a community improvement project, the Grace Street Dog Park has become a favorite spot for all the city’s dogs. Grace Street Dog Park is an off-leash park and has three separate fenced areas for small, large, and active dogs. There are two on-leash trails to enjoy and a beautiful small pond as well. The bluebird trail loops around the pond and has several nesting sites for local birds. There is also a two-mile education trail that your pup will love to sniff out.
No matter whether you’re looking to chow down with your hound or get some mutts-needed exercise at a local park, Greenwood has plenty of op-paw-tunities for dog-friendly fun!
First opened in 1945, the 25 Auto Drive-In has remained a favorite for many two- and four-legged Greenwood residents. Tickets are only $5 per carload and the shows always run no matter the weather! There are three double-feature screens to choose from every weekend and it is suggested you come early to get the best view. The food here isn’t your typical theater fare. There are 31 hearty menu items, including rib-eye sandwiches, mac and cheese balls, and even salads. Grab a blanket and a snack to share -- your pup will be pawsitively begging to come back!
