Several years ago, Carolina Mountain Dog covered Fletcher Community Park (off Howard Gap Road and Hendersonville Road in Fletcher, NC) as an ideal "Pooch Path." The park features flat, paved and very walkable trails that run through the park and beyond to a lovely greenway, behind the park. Bordering the park is also Cane Creek, accessible from a crushed stone path, where dogs can splash around and get a cold drink.
Now, Fletcher Community Park is an even better doggie destination. The park has added the new Morris Broadband Dog Park, which consists of two separate large fenced in areas, one for small dogs and one for large dogs, where your pet can roam off-leash. The Dog Park can be accessed off the main trail that circles the park.
Here's a tip to add an extra dimension to your visit. Go to the Blue Sky Cafe on Hendersonville Road (a minute away from the corner of Hendersonville and Howard Gap Roads) and take out one of their scrumptious wraps, salads or sandwiches and then picnic at one of the numerous tables set up around the park. It's a great way to get your dog out for a walk and enjoy lunch or dinner at the same time!
