It's a lovely park with a velodrome. My daughters had a great time playing there for an hour or so in the interesting and imaginative playground.

The park is nice , plenty of space to walk your dog, ride bikes ect.. they have a nice playground for the kids but it’s quite a walk from parking to get to the park.

In town great place to take a walk. Never crowded. You can walk near the river. Been there several times. After walking, there's a great little funky place to get a bite.

This is an awesome playground for kids to run off some energy. Be aware though, bathrooms are quite a walk from playground. Nice bike path for older and younger kids to ride on. Not a lot of shade.

Came here to hang out with friends and their kids. The kids loved it and there was so much for them to do. At the time I visited there was construction, so I'm not sure if that's still going on. Helpful tip: The restrooms are...More

That is a great question that I cannot quite answer but I suggest that you call the tourism office. I find that the trails are sufficient for me - and they are expanding as we speak: exploreasheville com

Probably last 15 or so years. There were many parts acquired at different times by Riverlink. The mellowdrome use to be a short race track for cars about 25 years ago. However I am not exactly sure.
