Greensboro has a new place for dog owners to unleash their best friends for play. WhiteStone – North Carolina’s first senior living community – will officially open “WoofStone Park,” an off-leash dog park. A ceremonial ribbon cutting and unleashing of the dogs will be held. The dog park is fenced, is approximately 115’ x 70’ in size and offers amenities such as seating, dog waste bags and trash cans, along with a few squeaky toys, ropes and tennis balls for all to share.
The dog park opening is one of many fun dog events at WhiteStone’s “Barktoberfest.” Other activities include:
- Frisbee performances by Miss Babe Ruth, the Greensboro Grasshopper mascot dog
- A pet adoption fair by the Guilford County Animal Shelter
- Drawing for a basket of dog treats and toys
- Doggie treats and refreshments will be served
Donations of dry or canned dog or cat food to the Guilford County Animal Shelter are appreciated.

“Barktoberfest” and the opening of “WoofStone Park” once again shine the spotlight on Whitestone’s brand-new wellness services and amenities. According to Colin Milner, CEO of the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA), activity and exercise is a tool that can help prevent the health issues many seniors face. As people more commonly view fitness and well-being as a form of medicine, today’s active seniors look for communities like Whitestone that offer an array of amenities that encourage activity, interaction and physical fitness.
Whitestone has been recognized for demonstrating the latest trends in senior living design with two design excellence awards from the National Association of Home Builders, including the 2012 “Best of 50+ Senior Housing” Silver Award and the 2011 “Long-Term Living Best in Class” Award.
Founded in 1912 as a Masonic & Eastern Star Community in the heart of Greensboro, North Carolina, WhiteStone is open to all seniors desiring an active lifestyle. As the first retirement community in North Carolina, WhiteStone has a long-standing reputation for outstanding wellness and continuing care. Now completing an extensive expansion and redevelopment within its established community, WhiteStone is an attractive, fun, growing community for seniors.
