Woodfin Greenway and Blueway
The Town of Woodfin is developing recreational facilities along the French Broad River for the benefit of its citizens and the larger community. The Woodfin Greenway and Blueway (WGB) is a major component of this overall effort that connects a new park and an expanded park to one another. The project moves us closer to the vision of greenway connection from Reynolds Mountain to the River Arts District Asheville.

In an effort to improve conditions for citizens and businesses the Town Board believed that the creation of a greenway and park system along the French Broad would enhance property values, encourage investment and improve the lives of our citizens. The community agreed and overwhelmingly voted to partially fund the project through a 2016 bond referendum.

A tremendous amount of gratitude to all the funders that have made this ambitious project possible. The WGB project has received significant financial support from the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority, the Federal Highway Administration (via NC Department of Transportation), Buncombe County, the NC Departments of Environmental Quality and Parks & Recreation, the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, landowners who are providing easements for the greenway and private donors including the Silver family. In 2016, voters in the Town of Woodfin overwhelmingly approved a referendum for $4.5 million in general obligation bonds to support construction.

Riverlink and Buncombe County Recreation Services are the Town's primary partners driving the project toward completion.
