Wilma Dykeman Greenway Description

This is a 2-mile greenway located in the newly improved River Arts District on the east bank of the French Broad River. It was developed as part of the larger River Arts District Transportation Improvement Plan (RADTIP) which included improvements for road safety, flood mitigation as well as new public art and gardens. The greenway consists of a wide paved pathway for walking, running biking and skating. There is also a dedicated two-way bike-lane sandwiched between the road and the path. At Lyman and Amboy, you can take a right and continue to French Broad River Park and Carrier Park via the French Broad River Greenway on the west side of the river.

The greenway is named for Wilma Dykeman, an author and environmentalist who in 1955 wrote The French Broad, about the river and the region. She was a passionate advocate for the protection and rehabilitation of the river. Dykeman passed away in 2006.

Parking and Trail Access

There are free parking spots along Riverside and Lyman Street, and there is a free parking lot under the 240 overpass near the Smoky Park Supper club. There is another lot off Lyman near the traffic circle and boat launch.
