As Greenways Gain Ground in Asheville, Neighborhood Accessibility Grows

Asheville Homes Near Greenways

Asheville Parks and Recreation maintains a beautiful system of greenways throughout the city, with miles more planned for completion in the next few years. This means that even if you don’t currently have a greenway near your Asheville home, you likely will soon. From paths that incorporate edible gardens, to trails dotted with playgrounds and dog parks, Asheville offers a multitude of options for immersing yourself in nature without having to stray far from your neighborhood.

The trail is on-road in portions but there are also off-road trails through Weaver Park and UNCA.   Reed Creek Greenway links into this greenway corridor.
