Pearson Bridge

1905 - 1916 old Riverside Park at Pearson Bridge Carasel

1905 – 1916 old Riverside Park at Pearson Bridge Carasel

RiverLink’s Pearson Bridge property is another example of how much  we value  the history of the river, dirty-dirt,  canoeing  and kayaking  opportunities for the river,  development of new recreational businesses  and adaptive resuse of buildings.   We bought an old Tire Store at Pearson Bridge in 2011 because it is the site of the historic old Riverside Park, a  part of the old city owned landfill, a perfect location for Asheville Adventure Rental Company  to help you enjoy the getting on the river  and of course  it was a BIG eye-sore!  Take a look at the before and after photos,  historic photos, old landfill maps and promise yourself to get on the French Broad River today to have some fun,  get  healthy and  enjoy this resource we share.
