Ashley Caldwell and Anthony Toineeta take their pup, Bernard, to William Davie Park's dog park, which has separate areas for dogs under 20 pounds and ones 20 pounds and larger. "It's free and great family fun," says Thomas Jordan, who brings daughters Novalie and Paris. "It's also close to home so we can do it in about an hour and a half." Jason Weselov also comes with son Kellen here on Saturday mornings. "There are a lot of other disc golf courses in Charlotte, but this one is the most kid friendly," he notes. At just more than 7,000 feet long, the Angry Beaver Course that winds through wooded hills attracts groups of avid advanced players who tote bags of 10 or more discs, each designed for a different type of shot. Elon Park also has a gymnasium for shooting hoops, as well as regular badminton and pickleball games. This 118-acre green space behind Elon Park Elementary School features two, 18-hole disc golf courses, a beginner course and the Angry Beaver Course, which attracts advanced players such as Mike Roberson and Brant Weber. William Davie Park Located on Pineville-Matthews Road just east of Rea Road, William Davie Park is popular with athletes because of its four lighted softball fields, two lighted soccer fields, volleyball court, two horseshoe pits, pond, two playgrounds and restrooms. The 107-acre park is also a magnet for canine lovers because it has the only dog park in the Ballantyne area, a 5-acre, fenced-in secure area with two sections — one for dogs 20 pounds or larger, the other for dogs weighing less than 20 pounds. No children under 12 are allowed in the dog park, and dogs must meet all guidelines and maintain current vaccinations in off-leash areas.
