THE FALL 2018 PROGRAM GUIDE IS AVAILABLE!

Our fall guide contains information about all the programs we offer from September through December including adult fitness programs, outdoor adventures, youth and adult athletic programming and much more.  Find out what’s happening at the WNC Nature Center or Aston Park Tennis Center!  Pick up a copy at any of our Centers, City Hall, the Visitors' Center or download it here!


PARDON OUR DUST @ CARRIER PARK!

We're causing a lot of dust at Carrier Park!  Phase 3 of improvements involves the demolition and reconstruction of the lawn bowling green!  There are still a few tweaks being made to the interior of the park, so don't be surprised to find us still working in there too.


YOUTH BASKETBALL

If it's fall, it's time for basketball!  Our youth basketball leagues are getting ready to hit the gyms for the 2018 season.  Teams are co-ed, divided into age groups, and use a blind draw process to be sure that everybody gets to play!  We partner with Black Mountain Parks & Recreation to add to the excitement.  Most teams practice once per week and have games on Saturdays in Asheville or in Black Mountain.  Register online between September 6 and November 9 by clicking here.
Fee is only $15/player.


FALL TODDLER PROGRAMS

Now that the big kids have gone back to school, we're cranking up a brand new fall season of toddler programs!  Bring your little one to the Stephens-Lee Center and enjoy a program every day of the week.  These are adult/toddler programs with age appropriate activities for toddlers ages 2 to 5, so be ready to join in the fun!  For more information, contact the staff at Stephens-Lee at 828-350-2056.
