Mission Statement

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


The 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 play, 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  runners
