Welcome To Lake View Park
Serene lakeside living located just minutes from downtown.
In the early 1900’s, the area now known as Beaver Lake was a quiet meadow populated by grazing livestock. A trolley system conveyed vacationers through the area to Weaverville until 1923 when renowned urban planner and landscape architect John Nolen designed the neighborhood and the recreational lake. Nolen’s style was characterized by a desire to balance two transcendental ideals: civic virtue and nature. To this day, Lake View Park remains a beautiful legacy of this vision; even as Asheville continues to evolve and grow, the lake community remains an idyllic wildlife oasis located just four miles from the city’s downtown district.
Homeowners in Lake View Park enjoy running, walking, biking, bird watching, boating, and fishing in the park and on the lake, which are privately owned by residents of the neighborhood. A 1.9 mile scenic walking trail winds around the perimeter of the lake. The community is also home to a 10 acre wildlife sanctuary that provides resting, feeding, and nesting spots for resident and migratory birds. Both the sanctuary and the lake are open to the public (though guests are required to get permits for dog walking, fishing and boating).
There are 516 properties surrounding Beaver Lake. The area is known for its eclectic architecture, predominated by mid-century modern styles with a variety of bungalows and historic homes situated between. Properties are wooded with mature trees and there's a gentle sloping quality to the landscape that adds to the neighborhood’s beauty.
