Amenities at Craggy ParkCraggy Park’s design philosophy of clustering homes around ample common space means residents don’t have to go far to enjoy the outdoors. The neighborhood’s park on Fox Creek and adjacent urban woodland conservation area make it easy to stay connected to nature. The park includes a nature trail with benches, a lawn by the stream, two “little free libraries,” a tree house, an oversized double swing, organic gardens, a fire pit, a picnic area with a community grill and herb spiral gardens. Native, drought-tolerant and edible landscaping throughout the neighborhood provides a habitat for local flora and fauna.

For a more immersive experience in nature, residents have a range of nearby options. The neighborhood is an easy drive to hiking and biking trails in Bent Creek, water recreation on the French Broad River, and camping in Pisgah National Forest.

Connecting to Community at Craggy Park

Easy Access to Haywood RoadCraggy Park is linked to the Haywood Road business district via a greenway trail and a short stroll or bike ride up Dunwell Ave. Slicing through West Asheville, the vibrant commercial corridor has been the area’s main artery for more than 100 years. Mom-and-pop shops stand alongside an influx of newer businesses – everything from retro arcades to artist co-ops to bike and skate shops to music halls have found their way to Haywood. Even with the seismic shifts the street has seen, it still retains a small hometown air. Residents of Craggy Park can, in mere minutes, be at restaurants, bars, grocery stores, parks and other amenities – making it all the easier to truly experience the area’s energy and sense of community.

A number of well-regarded schools within walking or biking distance – including Vance Elementary School, Francine Delany New School for Children, Rainbow Community School and Asheville City Preschool, just to name a few – make Craggy Park ideal for families.
