    Rec Park Shelter #3
    Located along the Swannanoa River, the park features an outdoor swimming pool, playground, basketball courts, volleyball, horseshoe pit and picnic shelters. It is located in the same complex as the WNC Nature Center. Shelter #3 is a large, paved gazebo and includes 14 picnic tables, 2 grills, electricity access, and is located in the center island area closest to the swimming pool.
    As soon as you cross the bridge turn right into the lot you will see the gazebo. There is a large parking lot just past the pool. Please park in the lot past the pool.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
