About the Shiloh Center
The Linwood Crump Shiloh Center is a two-story, 21,200-square-foot building including a gymnasium, multipurpose room, library, classrooms, weight room, kitchen, storage, office, restrooms, outdoor patio. The 6-acre park consist of a playground, tennis court, ball field, basketball court, restrooms, walking trail and parking.
The center is the former Shiloh Elementary School. The City of Asheville acquired the property in a lease agreement in 1977 with Buncombe County Schools to be used as a public recreation Center, and later purchased it in 1997.
Over the years the city made improvements to the center and surrounding park, including the addition of a gymnasium and playground; improvements to the ball field, parking and lighting; addition of an outdoor patio and walking trail,; and replaced the roof. The gymnasium constructed in the mid-1970s was recently renovated to bring it up to the standards of a modern public gym.
