 We could create a community

park with a greenway that
connects Patton and Sand Hill
 The park would be modeled
after Bent Creek Community
Park and other similar projects
 The property ideally would be
put into a conservation land
trust that would oversee its
creation and maintenance
 A greenway through this tract

would connect the Malvern
Hills community to the river
parks and eventually to
downtown and Enka along the
greenways
 The trail through the Goodwill
property will provide
connection to ART stop on
Patton Avenue
 The Vrabel property is home

for many birds and animals
 We can plant native plants
that provide food for wildlife
 Monarch butterflies are in
crisis, the boggy areas would
be great for planting milkweed
 We should appreciate and
enhance the diverse
ecosystems that exist here
 Community work days could

clean the creek and redevelop
the riparian zone along creek
 We could enhance the boggy
areas with a constructed
wetland which will add
diversity to the existing flora
and fauna
 The property is beautifully

forested with diverse trees
 A trust could manage the
forest to allow old growth and
diversity
 Work parties could clear vines
out of trees
 Native hardwoods could be
planted
 Sulphur Springs is a historic

area with the earliest
settlements in West Asheville
 The springs were important to
the Cherokee, and became a
popular destination in the 19th
century
 The meadow is the site of
Asheville’s first golf course
The greenway will provide
recreational space for the
community
 Cycling
 Walking
 Playing in the creek
 Nature exploration
 Gathering for neighborhood
potlucks
Teachers at Vance Elementary
and Francine Delany have
been developing curricula for
use in the Hominy Creek
Greenway which incorporates
 Plant and tree identification
 Experiencing the quiet of
woodlands
 River ecology
 Invasive plants identification
Creating the vision
The Friends of Canie Creek
Greenway will organize under
the umbrella of the Friends of
Hominy Creek Greenway.

Both organizations celebrate
wetlands and public space.
The collaboration will help
assure this new park’s
creation.
 To create and maintain a

community park as an
independent, resident funded
entity that provides a safe place
for children to play, as well as for
our adults and youth to enjoy
nature and community
 To protect the creek and natural
wetlands that are a large part of
our park area
 To connect Malvern Hills to the
French Broad and beyond on the
greenways
Building community by working together
The Friends of Hominy Creek
Greenway is a group of
neighbors and other
stakeholders who are creating
a vision and working to create
special parks for our
community.
This group has had amazing
success.

Members are posed with golf equipment in front of the club house which dates to circa 1893-1896. Club originally organized in West Asheville as Swannanoa Hunt Club, with an interest in fox hunting. It was located near Sulphur Springs just south of Malvern Hills. It was purchased by Frank Coxe for the sole use of the club. Name changed 1/28/1895 to the Swannanoa Country Club; 2/21/1895 date of first "hunt ball" and 6/7/1895 date of official opening of the 1st golf links at the NE corner of what is now intersection of Sand Hill Road and Shelbourne Road. Moved to later location 1899 after George Pack donated a building and some land (for a golf course) at the end of Charlotte St. Name changed to Asheville Country Club 1909. Identified members: James Edwin Rumbough (in white cap to the left of post), Miss Sarah Keyes Rumbough (J.E.'s sister), Miss Elizabeth Fitzgerald Forbes, Miss Laura Carter, Miss Minnie Tucker, Miss Raidee Tucker, Miss Chism, Miss Sarah Mills (of Savannah, GA), Dr. Charles S.
