In the mood to just sit, see a view of the town, sketch, vegetate, read a book, sit under a tree and dream. This little park has this to offer.

A local recommended this to me and I couldn't be more happy that he did! Fantastic views of the city, even on a foggy day.

Beautiful park with gorgeous views of the city. We walked there all up hill from the Biltmore. It was well worth it if you like to walk. Of course you can drive there too.
