About the Greenway
The Hominy Creek Greenway is parkland on approximately 14 acres of land along Hominy Creek in West Asheville. The land borders 2/3 mile of the northern side of Hominy Creek and Buttermilk Creek between Sand Hill Road and Hominy Creek Road. Its southern boundary is the creek and its northern boundary follows the back lot lines of the houses on Shelburne Road.
The land was logged by Edwin Carrier in the late 1880’s. It became the route for the West Asheville and Sulphur Springs Railway, his trolley between Asheville and his Sulphur Springs Hotel, the first hydro-electric powered railroad in WNC.
The Friends of Hominy Creek Greenway holds the community vision for the park and has a partnership agreement with the City of Asheville designating our organization as stewards.
