Greeneville is a historic town nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of Northeast Tennessee. Founded in 1783 and settled by several Revolutionary War veterans, it has a long history of involvement in national politics. It was home to a strong abolitionist movement and petitioned to remain part of the Union, though it was ultimately taken over by Confederate forces. Its location makes it a prime spot for setting out to explore the outdoors with your dog. Thousands of acres of national forests and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are less than an hour's drive away. There are many great parks in Greeneville's city limits, and seven veterinary clinics in town to care for your pup's medical needs.
Perhaps best known for the Ginny Kidwell Amphitheater that hosts outdoor concerts in the summer, Greeneville's Dogwood Park also provides plenty of space for your pup to roam. A walking trail includes a boardwalk around a cattail pond. Mature trees provide shade in the summer and make a beautiful display of color in the fall. You will need to keep your dog on a leash at Dogwood Park and bring your own waste bags and water.
There's something timeless in the air in Greeneville, Tennessee, that will make you want to linger just a little longer here as you run your hand through your dog's soft fur.
