Welcome to the Friends of Hominy Creek Greenway Website!
We’re glad you’re here and we appreciate your interest in your park. We are currently working closely with the City of Asheville and the community to accomplish our mission to manage parkland that maintains its wild nature, preserves the area’s rich history, and connects the West Asheville community to the river and to downtown.
We invite you to bring your enthusiasm and skill-sets! Please join us through a number of various means: become a member, participate in volunteer workdays and/or attend our monthly Board/steering committee meetings. You can also give feedback and meet other FOHCG supporters at our community gatherings.
