Asheville SkatePark

skater at skate parkTHIS PROJECT IS COMPLETE!

 

Happening Now

Plans are underway to make improvements to the Asheville SkatePark located at 50 Cherry Street N.  The project includes demolition of the building located on the property to create an entry plaza.  The improvements will create a more open space with better visibility to enhance public safety.

 

 

 


Background

Originally named the Food Lion Skatepark, this was the first skatepark in the Asheville area.  As operations changed over the years and the facility was no longer staffed, the building became the target of repeated vandalism requiring substantial investments in maintenance.

 


Timeline

Summer 2020 – Work begins the week of June 8.  The entire project should take about 4 weeks depending on weather conditions.
