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.
