Update (May 25, 2023): Some parts of Carrier Park’s playground are closed for long-term maintenance and renovations. These areas are clearly marked and should be avoided at all times as they are “work zones.” Areas will reopen as safety repairs are complete, though some areas may be closed longer than others.

One of Asheville’s premiere parks offers volleyball courts, playground, roller-hockey rink, basketball court, a multi-use track, lawn bowling court, greenway access, multi-use sports field, picnic shelter, river overlooks, wetland education area, and ballfield.

Parties and Rentals

Looking for an affordable outdoor location for your next party, reunion, baby shower, retreat, or celebration? Reserve the picnic shelter online or call 828-259-5800.

To schedule ongoing use, add elements to the park (such as tents and inflatables), or host a special event, special permits may be required. Please contact Jon Fillman at or 828-259-5738.
