Park Maintenance Division:
Although the Town of Weaverville does not have recreation programming staff, the Town provides a number of passive recreational opportunities for its citizens and visitors at its two parks, Lake Louise Park and the Main Street Nature Park. The Recreation Division of the Public Works Department is responsible for maintenance of these parks, equipment and facilities. The Town has adopted a number of rules and regulations to help keep our parks in good condition and insure that everyone has an enjoyable time.
Lake Louise Park is a located at 120 Merrimon Avenue and covers approximately 15.5 acres. The park features Lake Louise itself, playground facilities, outdoor exercise equipment, picnic shelters, a 0.61 mile walking track, grills, a beautiful waterwheel and fishing opportunities. Those who have a State fishing license purchased from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission may fish in Lake Louise.
For the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 a fishing permit from the Town of Weaverville to fish in Lake Louise is no longer required.
The Main Street Nature Park, a 10 acre park, is located behind Town Hall, running parallel to Main Street from Town Hall to Pine Street, where there is a small parking area. This park allows for passive recreation such as walking, running, bird watching, picnics, photography and nature viewing. Leashed dogs are permitted on the walking trail. The park is a demonstration facility for creating natural habitats for flora and fauna. Established in 2019 the Town of Weaverville also hosts the Second Saturday Summer Series at a newly constructed stage found in the meadow within the park. Neighbors are invited to enjoy local musicians playing traditional music under the summer sky. Additional information related to this event may be found on the Town’s event calendar.
The Weaverville Water System supplies drinking water to all developed areas within the corporate limits of the Town of Weaverville with over 66 miles of pipe. In addition, the system serves approximately 2,800 customers in areas of Buncombe County adjacent to the town Limits, in the Reems Creek Valley and in areas along US Highway 19/23 North toward Madison County. While the Town of Weaverville was established in 1875, voters in 1913 approved the construction of the municipal water system. The system has operated continuously since that time.
The Water Production division of the Weaverville Water Department is responsible for producing all of the water distributed by the system. The Town of Weaverville owns and operates a 1.5 million gallon per day water treatment plant located in northern Buncombe County. In addition to water produced at the Water Plant, the Town has a connection with the City of Asheville and the Town of Mars Hill.
