There are plenty of reasons to love living in Cary, but the town’s pet-friendly amenities are one of the best benefits for residents and their furry friends. If you’re looking for a fun activity to do on the weekends, or even during the week, check out some of our recommendations for pet-friendly things to do in Cary.
Take Your Pet to Cary’s Dog Parks
Let your pet run off-leash and meet new friends in the process! Cary has two dog parks, one just a few minutes from Downtown Cary at Godbold Park and one off of Penny Road at Jack Smith Park.
You do have to purchase a pass to use the dog park, but day passes and annual membership cards are valid at both dog parks.
Visit a Local Brewery with Your Friends
In Cary, you can take your dog with you when you hang out with friends. Fortnight Brewing Company, Jordan Lake Brewery Company, and Bond Brothers Beer are all dog-friendly breweries, so invite your friends and their pets to spend a fun evening on the town.
Spend Time Exploring Cary’s Greenway Trails
If you and your pet enjoy long-distance hikes, consider visiting one of Cary’s many greenway trails. The shortest trails are less than half a mile while the longer trails are over 5 miles. If you’re eager to test your endurance, consider these lengthy trails:
- American Tobacco Trail — a 22-mile trail from Apex to Durham that has a nearly 5-mile segment in Cary.
- White Oak Creek Greenway — a nearly 5-mile trail that starts in Bond Park and extends out to West Cary.
- Black Creek Greenway — a 7-mile trail that connects with the White Oak Greenway, Lake Crabtree County Park, Godbold Park (plus one of Cary’s dog parks), and Bond Park.
