You can now walk, bike, run, or smoothly skate from Carrier Park to New Belgium Brewery, thanks to the newly completed one-mile French Broad River West Greenway.

The new section extends from the southern end of the French Broad River Park (near the dog park) to the Wilma Dykeman Greenway under the Haywood Road bridge. With this missing link now connected, that makes for a four-mile stretch of continuous greenway alongside the French Broad River.

Here’s to more green + natural space in the 828.
