Google Earth Picture of Richmond Hill City Park

Richmond Hill City Park is the large swath of greens and browns (center of picture) on the southern bank of the French Broad River as it flows around Richmond Hill headed north (river flows North, from bottom to top of photograph). It is a refuge for people and wildlife amidst a sea of pavement and development. I don't know how old this satellite image is, but I can guarantee that the green space isn't growing, but the development and pavement certainly is.

This park is to precious and unique for Asheville to lose.
