This petition it to protect Asheville City's largest wooded park form having a large portion of it cleared and leveled for a ball field complex.
Richmond Hill Park is the City of Asheville, NC's largest wooded city park. At 183 acres this park is unique and irreplaceable. It connects the French Broad River and adjoining wetland complex with the drier woods of the uplands. Its strength is its size as this park caters to a wide variety of outdoor activities such as mountain biking, hiking, jogging, dog walking, bird watching, and just seeking serenity. The park is wooded and very hill, and current city plans are to level a large portion (over 24 acres) for a ball field complex including 5 fields, parking lot, and concessions building. The main entrance for the ball field complex will be through the quiet neighborhood of Richmond Hill.
