Kinston's Rotary Dog Park

By Spencer Mohead on April 29, 2011 at 11:20 am EST

You couldn't tell from looking at its 32 acres of ponds, landscaping and gleefully bounding dogs, but Kinston's Rotary Dog Park was once a landfill. After exhaustive cleanup of the site, local Rotary Clubs and other volunteers have created a pup paradise.

Located along N.C. 11 South near Skinner’s Bypass, the leashless park includes large open areas and enough trees to keep a dog occupied for hours. For extended play dates, be sure to bring water and a dish.

Don't mind wet dog smell? Another of Kinston's outdoor spots for Spot is Tull's Mill Pond, where well-behaved dogs can swim and socialize with or without leashes.

Kinston continues to have a small-town feel, and now it has large-city amenities.
