French Broad River Park

508 Riverview Drive

One of Asheville's most beautiful parks, the park meanders alongside the tranquil French Broad River and features a vast area of open green space with old trees, a wildflower garden, a paved trail, a gazebo,picnic tables and grills, an observation deck, and a small playground. One acre fenced and wood chipped yard for off-leash dogs. The Dog Park features a large fenced-in area, with a water pump, perfect for exercising and socializing your dog.

Great place to walk, some dirt so not all paved. Lots of dog walkers, but the owners seem respectful - leases, keeping dogs away from walkers, and picking up. Enjoyable walk along the river with many different types of trees along the way. Bikes are for rent within 100 yards of this parking lot.

This place is awesome if you keep going along the river when the park ends there's a lot of trails where if you're a bum you can just live in your tent or not or if you want just want to keep walking or running with your dog's you don't need them on leashes it's nice place to go. Also I heard that it's a nice trail that connects to a brewery down the way and there were a bunch of people riding mountain bikes.. highly recommended

Lovely shaded park with paved walking paths. Shaded areas with benches to sit by the river. Several picnic tables and a picnic pavilion. Also has a nice dog park at one end

Beautiful park with nice shaded areas. My husband and I went on the 4th of July and had a picnic. Bathrooms worked and were open, people were grilling out, riding bikes and hanging out. You could see the river and people floating down. Really nice environment.

If you love dogs this is a great place to hang out. We hung our hammock by the river side and had a very relaxing time here.
