Friends of Hominy Creek Greenway

Mission Statement

The Friends of Hominy Creek Greenway works with the West Asheville community to manage and create community parkland that maintains its wild nature, preserves the area’s rich history, and connects the community to the river and to downtown.  

Vision

Friends of Hominy Creek Greenway work collaboratively with members, volunteers, neighbors, school groups and local organizations to restore native habitats along Hominy Creek as a place for community to recreate, commute, and connect with nature.  We envision the following:

  • Creation of a community greenway park by working with local artisans,  landscapers, and neighbors to create park facilities that support community gatherings, individual discovery, and alternative modes of transportation
  • Restored native habitats through the riparian zone and waterway
  • Partnerships that foster support for the greenway and encourage the involvement of local businesses and residents
  • Established community gardens and edible forests in ideal places along the greenway/path
  • Interpretative signs and educational tools for teachers, students, and other visitors
  • Well-maintained footpaths to ensure its use as a trail for walkers, bikers, and other wanderers-raising source for the Friends of Hominy Creek Greenway.

  1. Thank you for all your hard work in bringing this remarkable resource to West Asheville. I enjoy it regularly. I would like to encourage you to find a way to control the erosion and sedimentation affecting the beach area. Sediment fences could help over the fall and winter until vegetation has a chance restabilize the bank. Blocking the descending access could help, as well. Directing access from the upstream end of the area could work if clear enough. I would help with labor for this project. Thank you. Shannon Rose 230-4839
