Triad Dog Parks

Real Estate Agent with The Carolina Crew, Inc. 246097

 Triad dog parks like those elsewhere throughout the country are high demand commodities for urban and small town’s residents alike.   With smaller lots due to rising land prices, growing numbers of condo, townhome and high-rise owners, and a shortage of sidewalks, pet-owners are at a loss for a place to exercise and socialize their dogs.  The growing number of Triad dog parks makes this area especially attractive to folks considering relocation.

In the past pet owners have had to make due keeping pets on leash and exercising them at local city and county parks throughout the Triad.  More recently, designated areas, fenced and away from populated areas provide a secure venue for pets and owners alike. 

Greensboro, the largest city in the Triad currently offers three dog parks.  The largest and most well-known is Stephen M Hussey Bark Park at Country Park (3905 Nathanael Greene Drive) the City’s first off-leash dog park established in 2003 to honor its namesake’s role as a founding member of the park’s fundraising committee.  This large park (almost six acres) offers three dedicated areas where responsible pet owners can gather for exercise and socialization. Lot A (small or loner dogs), and Lots B, & C (general use) all include grassy areas and are separated by air-lock gates.  Southwest Dog Park (6309 SW Park Dr) another popular site among pet owners offers 2.5 acres of fenced area with special areas for large and small dogs as well as fresh water and pet treats.  The newest addition to the growing number of Triad dog parks is the Greensboro Pop-Up Dog Park is located downtown (S Elm St & E Lee St).  This spacious green space, with separate entrances for small & large dogs, is making its trial run before becoming a permanent downtown fixture.  The addition of this facility is sure to be a plus for the   residents who call downtown home.

Winston Salem , next largest offers residents two more Triad dog parks, Washington Dog Park (1490 Broad St) a popular off-leash park within this beautiful WS public park and Horizon Park (2835 Memorial Industrial School Rd, Rural Hall), a beautifully maintained  on-leash dog park  that is part of this popular WS public park.

The newly established Kernersville Dog Park offers separate areas for small & large dogs and as well as watering stations and waste disposal bags.  Nestled in popular Fourth of July Park in the center of Kernersville, this dog park is a shining example of how Triad dog parks can become realty when residents of a community decide on the importance of them.
