RiverLink and Friends of Woodfin Greenway & Blueway are joining forces in support of the Woodfin Greenway & Blueway project!
The Greenway & Blueway project is an ambitious $18.1 million effort to construct five miles of greenway along the French Broad River and Beaverdam Creek, new river access sites, the new Silver-Line Park, expansion of Riverside Park, and creation of the in-stream Wave feature for whitewater paddling and surfing enthusiasts. The included greenway trails will connect to the larger system of greenway trails being developed in the City of Asheville and beyond, promising a network of more than 25 miles of safe urban paths centering on the French Broad River. The project is being designed and built by the Town of Woodfin, with Buncombe County Recreation Services supporting the effort with design and construction of the greenway elements of the project. Fundraising and planning have been underway since 2016, and project construction is set to begin in 2019. Completion is targeted for 2021.
