The commercial district of Merrimon Avenue offers a range of restaurants, cafes, grocery stores and other retail destinations, many within walking distance or mere minutes by car. Downtown Asheville is only 4 miles south of Lakeview Park. The community is also close to a number of schools, both public and private.

Lake View Park neighborhood's rich history in Asheville

Noted landscape architect and urban planner John Nolen is credited with the creation of the Lakeview Park neighborhood in 1923. The construction for the dam of Beaver Lake was completed that same year by esteemed engineering firm Charles E. Waddell & Co., turning a onetime grazing meadow into the community’s crown jewel. It was around this same period that Merrimon Avenue became part of the famous Dixie Highway system, connecting North Asheville to Weaverville and increasing the popularity of and accessibility to the neighborhood.

Golfing, tennis and swimming, all nearby

Lakeview Park is home to the revered Country Club of Asheville. Its championship, Donald-Ross-designed golf course (built in 1928) features bentgrass greens, 25-tee driving range, and fairways boasting breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as downtown Asheville. 

The Country Club of Asheville’s aquatics center offers an Olympic-size pool for cooling off or just relaxing with a drink. In addition, the country club’s tennis complex is a popular hub of racquet sports, thanks to its eight outdoor and two indoor tennis courts, along with six indoor pickleball courts.

The neighborhood is well established with a rich history and the properties have large lots and beautiful landscaping, often with views. The Asheville Country Club, which was established in 1894, is part of this neighborhood and it is a beautiful club with wonderful mountain views and great amenities including a Donald Ross designed golf course. Lakeview Park also features Beaver Lake which is a small but lovely lake lined by Sycamore trees with a pedestrian walking/running path circling the lake. There are also some great restaurants nearby and several close-by schools and parks."

Lakeview Park is a nature lover’s paradise, offering opportunities to enjoy the ample wildlife and varied vegetation native to the region. A 2-mile, resident-maintained walking and running path circles Beaver Lake and is open to the public.

Adjacent to Beaver Lake is the Beaver Lake Bird Sanctuary, an 8-acre wetland and nature preserve managed by the Blue Ridge Audubon. (An additional 4 acres, owned by the Lake View Park Commission, serves as a protective barrier to commercial development.) Visitors can observe a range of bird, butterfly and dragonfly species along an easily accessible boardwalk. The sanctuary is open year-round, offering a peaceful, immersive experience within walking distance of Lakeview Park.
