Dog Areas in Saluda, SC

Saluda is a small town situated along the banks of the Little Saluda River. Like many towns in the area, what Saluda lacks in population, it certainly makes up for in charm. There is nothing finer than to be in Carolina, after all! With the beautiful river views, it’s easy to see why people would flock to this town, whether they’re tourists or live there on a more permanent basis. 

While there aren’t a lot of activities for you and your canine companion, at least centered in Saluda, the city is just a short drive from Columbia, where you and Fido are sure to have the time of your lives. One of the many attractions nearby is the Columbia Dog Park, an off-leash park that’s very popular with the locals. It’s right next to the animal shelter and even features a doggy pond for your pup to get their paws wet. There is also drinking water, and doggy waste receptacles are available for use. Although there is a fee for the yearly pass, it’s well worth the money, and your dog will thank you. Just come on over and dive right on in!
