This park is a horrible mess that was only fun as a Racetrack, The biking or whatever rink they made it now is just a mess.

Great place to take the kids for a picnic, go for a run, walk the dog or just hang out by the French Broad River. Also, it's easy to access the River Arts District from there, too!

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.

They are along the walking trail that runs behind the playground. You have to go past the playground toward the climbing facility to get there

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
