Dog Walking in Greenwood
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!
Best Dog Neighborhoods in Greenwood
There are a lot of places to explore in downtown Greenwood, including two conventional parks, a bark park, a rail trail, and several dog-friendly eateries to choose from! Heritage Trail is a 2.5-mile rail trail located near the heart of downtown. Less than three miles away is the West Cambridge Park, the perfect place for any people-loving pooch. West Cambridge Park encompasses 11 acres and has picnic shelters, playgrounds, a pavilion, and three miles of walking trails. You can’t come downtown without grabbing a bite and a craft brew at The Mill House. Home to gourmet pizzas, micro brews, and awesome staff, this dog-friendly joint is one of the hippest places in town!
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!
Give your puppy some play time, and a history lesson, too, at historic Star Fort in Ninety-Six. Star Fort was home to two battles and held under siege during the Revolutionary War. Originally constructed in 1780, the fort is now preserved as a national historic site by the National Park Service. There is an education trail with informative markers along the path, which point out the historic significance of various parts of the fort. In addition to acres of walking and education trails, there is also an equestrian trail and a fishing pond for you and pup to enjoy. Make sure to check the park website or call ahead to confirm the pond is open before heading off!
Baker Creek State Park
Baker Creek State Park
Baker Creek State Park encompasses 1,305 acres of beautiful McCormick countryside, just outside of Greenwood County. The park is built on the beautiful 71,100-acre Lake Thurmond, in the Old 96 District. Your pup will love lying on the dog-friendly beach and cooling off in the water. Baker Creek hosts over 10 miles of scenic trails. These trails are considered to be some of the best for mountain biking in the Carolinas! If a 10-mile trail is too much for your pupper, you may want to check out the two additional (much shorter) nature trails. Your fur-iend will be happy to know there are convenient campgrounds within the park (and hot showers too)!
Irvin Pitts Memorial Park
Irvin Pitts Memorial Park
Irvin Pitts Memorial Park is located about 20 miles north of Greenwood, in the small town of Ware Shoals. The picturesque view of the Saluda and close riverfront access make this park a pawsitively perfect place to wet your paws. There are picnic shelters, grills, and benches, making it a favorite location for picnicking and birthday parties. Pitts Park is home to many species of ducks and other wildlife. There is even a webpage dedicated to the birds that call this park home! Many people and pets love swimming here, but use caution if you decide to -- the rocks can create strong undercurrents in certain areas.
