Haw Creek Parks and Recreation

Masters Park
101 Maple Drive.

HCCA was instrumental in creating this nine-acre park on Maple Drive. When the property came on the market in 2009, we organized a fundraising effort that resulted in local residents, the City of Asheville, and Buncombe County each providing a third of the $720,000 purchase price. This beloved park has a hiking trail connecting Haw Creek to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.

Named after an Asheville legend in youth sports, Charlie Bullman Park features a six-acre, three-field complex off New Haw Creek Road. In the 1960s, Charlie Bullman helped found what is today known as Bullman Field in Haw Creek, his lifelong home.
