Asheville's front yard where the historic past meets the future. Named in 1900 after George Pack for his donation of land to be used as a public park, Pack Square Park underwent several transformations over the years. Sophisticated yet spontaneous, the park links the diverse culture of roaming troubadours, festivals, theatre, and family gatherings. The art deco City Hall and other historic buildings surround paying tribute to a colorful past. Bronze pigs and turkeys trot by a Civil War Monument on their way to market, while Urban Trail markers guide visitors from one adventure to another. Native trees and plants grace the park. Handmade ceramic tiles decorate a stage where musicians and dancers regularly perform. Water features draw people to each section of the park, keeping it active day and night. A whimsical handrail encircles an observation point and compliments the stately marble Veterans' Memorial nearby.
