Haw Creek Park Greenway
The neighborhood association that brought you Haw Creek Park and Masters Park is undertaking a campaign to bring the first-ever public greenway to the Haw Creek valley. This greenway will run alongside our namesake Haw Creek allowing, for the first time, public access to the creek.
The greenway will link treasured community attractions – the East Asheville Library, Haw Creek Park, our charming commercial area – with the surrounding residential area and the nearby elementary school. Imagine the joy of walking along the creek to access these, or just stopping by for a relaxing streamside picnic.
The Haw Creek Community Association seeks to raise $78,000 to complete the greenway in 2024. Although most of the funding will come from grants, our goal is to raise $10,000 from within the Haw Creek community in the next 60 days. Your contribution will help demonstrate broad-based community support, which will significantly increase our chances for success in obtaining the grants.
We've got designs in hand and enthusiastic approval from all landowners whose property is involved but we need your help to make it happen. Please make a tax-deductible donation now to help us make this greenway a reality.
Your Haw Creek Park Greenway Campaign contribution will be used to:
- Help create a bucolic, walkable connection between fun places to visit in Haw Creek, like the library, park, grade school, and commercial district.
- Enable you and your neighbors to enjoy what would be the first and only public access to our namesake Haw Creek.
- Show strong community support to targeted grant making organizations, helping convince them to award us the bulk of funding required.
HCCA has a track record of success on community-driven projects. By working in partnership with local and state government, foundations, and our neighbors, we have been able to accomplish valued and lasting improvements for the Haw Creek community. We believe this greenway will provide these same long-lasting benefits.
