I'd like to take a moment to recognize all those who made possible the Reed Creek Greenway and thank them profusely for their efforts.
As a north Asheville/Five Points resident, I have used the completed Phase I consistently as a lunch spot, a dog park, a bike lane and a place to poke about in the creek and enjoy nature. The mix of manicured lawn, native flora, history and watershed-information placards, tall trees and park benches makes for quite a lovely little reprieve from city life. It's a blessing.
I eagerly await the opening of Phase II, eyeing the progress and smiling in anticipation. I'm comforted knowing that Asheville cares to implement such projects, which serve to benefit everyone yet lack any kind of profit for the developers.
Thank you so much for increasing the livability of our neighborhood and for serving the community as good citizens should, a hearty mix of contractors, nonprofits, city government and volunteerism.
