The Lakeview Park Neighborhood ~ Asheville, N.C. ~
A Community Embracing a Sustainable Future.

____ Points of Interest: Five minutes from downtown Asheville, and close to clothing shops, lakeview park asheville sustainable neighborhood strollbakeries, local restaurants and umbrellas at the coffee house, is sweet Lakeview Park.  

If you are up for a brisk walk (or simply a leisurely stroll)  around Beaver Lake, the Lakeview Park Neighborhood is a place not  to be missed.

Since its creation in the early 1920s,  Beaver Lake, created by damming Beaver Creek and flooding what had been known as Baird Bottoms, has been one of the special features of this venerable and sustainable  neighborhood.  In 1922, J.D. Murphy and Fred Sale began buying land along Beaver Creek for an exclusive housing development now known as Lakeview Park.

Almost 90 years later, we regularly walk around Beaver Lake throughout the seasons. (see my photo)

 We visit our neighbors, continue to be amazed with the  views of the surrounding mountains, sweet picnic spots, colorful canoes gliding by and a sense of "all's right" that seems to be in the air.

Today, the Lakeview Park Neighborhood is a multi-generational masterpiece,offering something for everyone no matter what age. Here are a just couple of examples:

____ a) Birding: If you are a birder,  you will love the Beaver Lake Sanctuary where you can spot loons, grebes, cormorants, herons, swans, geese, ducks, hummingbirds, woodpeckers… just to begin to name a few. Here's a checklist my birding friends take with them when they walk the boardwalk into an almost magical Sanctuary  where an awareness and appreciation of nature, wildlife and natural ecosystems, and responsible environmental stewardship come together. ...You can enjoy about a half-mile boardwalk loop with two lake overlooks and several benches, and an eco-filter pond designed to clean up storm run-off before it enters the lake and the French Broad River system. So close at hand to the Lakeview Park Neighborhood, the Sanctuary offers an engaging place for  a solitary walk and observation, or a friendly family sojourn.   Typical Mountain Eco GOlf Course North Carolina


___ b)GOLF Anyone? For those of you who love golf as much as we do, please know that Lakeview Park is the home of the Country Club of Asheville with it's fine Donald Ross golf course and tennis facility.

(photo shows one the golf courses for which North Carolina is about both challenging and gorgeous!)
