Chris and I love the little town of Flat Rock, North Carolina, and it is a quick drive there from our home. There are some places to eat and shop (not that we are doing that lately) and some lovely places to walk.
Sunday morning we got up and took off for The Park at Flat Rock. We have driven by it many times but never stopped in to investigate further. The walking path is visible from the road and the park is actually an old golf course that has been repurposed. The entire place is really pretty and a great place to enjoy a walk in nature. The park is comprised of 66 acres and has two playgrounds as well as picnic pavilions and other areas of interest.
We spent a little time walking the perimeter and planned to go back and walk some of the inside trails but by the time we got back to our starting point it was getting really crowded and we just didn’t want to be there with the amount of people that were there. Sometimes you just have to do what feels right. We will check it out again during the week sometime when it won’t be as busy.
The park is open from dawn until dusk, seven days a week . It is located at 55 Highland Golf Drive, Flat Rock, NC 28731. For facility reservations and more information about the Park at Flat Rock, contact Village of Flat Rock at 828-697-8100.

Looks like a great get away!! Perhaps, Mr Diamond needs to bring his fishing rod next time.
Maybe so! He did take some time checking out the holes so who knows? He always says he should put his fishing rods in the trunk….
Bruce and I were there two years ago and we really liked it!
It’s a nice little park and I wonder why we haven’t stopped there earlier!
What a pretty spring walk! A golf course near us has been repurposed for walking and biking and it is very popular, too.
It’s a great use of someplace that is no longer used for its original purpose. Innovative thinking!
So pretty. Looking forward to hiking again in NC when we come up later this summer to drop Ash off.
Looks like a beautiful park.
What a lovely walk & park. Love the pictures.
