Charlotte itself is a large city located on the North Carolina-South Carolina border. Known as the Queen City, Charlotte is home to professional sports teams, access to outdoor recreation, an energetic nightlife, plenty of museums, and a well-known regional amusement park! Charlotte is only two hours from the nearby Great Smoky Mountains and only three hours from a beach!
Charlotte, as a city, is quite hilly and so is Eastover! There are both rolling and dramatic hills in this neighborhood, so you and Spot will experience a variety of different inclines and declines while you walk around. You may need to plan your route ahead of time.
The boundaries of Eastover include South Laurel Avenue and Randolph Road to the north, Briar Creek to the east, and Providence Road to the west. Most of the commercial spaces and the heavier traffic will be on Providence Road, the northwestern border of the neighborhood.
Other nearby greenways include Freedom Park, Edgehill Neighborhood Park, Colonial Park, Chantilly Park, and Oakhurst Park. These generally have a playground, paved walking paths, places to sit, and manicured terrain. Some larger parks may also have a sports field or court to enjoy. Just remember to keep your pup off of sports courts while in use.
Unfortunately, there are no dog parks in or immediately surrounding Eastover. The nearest dog park is roughly eight miles away. Ray's Fetching Meadow, located in McAlpine Creek Community Park, is one-acre, off-leash area for pups to enjoy.
