Pictures of the ball field complex and the new entrance to the Armory. The area to be cleared for JUST the fields is ~125o feet X 925 feet. And the joint project will require the moving of about 1/4 million cubic yards of earth (estimate from Parks and Rec.), to fill in the valleys and cut the ridges level. This Park is an irreplaceable treasure of Asheville and these plans are a waste of the Asheville's most unique city Park.
