Triangle Park

Happening Now

The City of Asheville Parks & Recreation Department is making improvements to Triangle Park in downtown.  Improvements include re-sodding grassed areas, installation of an irrigation system throughout the sod areas, mulching under trees and other areas where grass isn’t feasible, limbing and pruning trees for better visibility and replacing the park furnishings such as trash/recycling cans, benches and picnic tables.

 

 

 


Background

Triangle Park is located at 58 S. Market Street downtown and features a mural depicting significant people and moments in Asheville’s African-American history.  The Parks & Recreation Department and Just Folks, a community organization based in the Eagle/Market neighborhood, are joined in a community benefit agreement to maintain and care for the park.

 


Timeline

The project is scheduled to begin Winter, 2020/2021 and be completed in early Summer, 2021.
