Pet Lovers

Bring your furry friends to Gaston County. We have several accommodations that accept pets and the list can be found on our website. Leashed pets are also welcome at U.S. National Whitewater Center as well as Crowders Mountain State Park. We also have several dog parks at George Poston Park, Goat Island, Cloniger Park and Tuckaseegee Park. Hickory Tavern and River’s Edge Bar & Grill are great outdoor dining options. PetSmart in Gastonia is available for all your needs. If you and your friend need a little time apart, Happy Dog Café and Claws & Paws Inn offer Doggie Day Care; both have great facilities and offer fun activities.
