Pack Square Conservancy

Bolton & Menk was part of the design team chosen to revitalize historic Pack Square and return it to the vibrant pedestrian-friendly gathering space it once was. The final plan involved the restoration of historic Pack Square, re-establishment of the historic street grid, and the creation of a new park spanning two city blocks. The park was designed to attract the everyday user and locals to a comfortable setting. It fulfills Asheville's heritage as a festival city with various performance venues to celebrate the many public gatherings. The lowest terrace portion of the park consists of a great lawn, an amphitheater, and a central green to complement the two architecturally significant buildings. The mid-block park serves as a transition between the historic area and the green. As a transitional zone, it includes a terrace, a terraced water feature, and a pavilion that not only acts as a hub for activity, but is also designed to collect stormwater, which in turn is used for irrigation in the park.
