The Park Avenue development in South Asheville, off of Sweeten Creek Road between Ballentree and the Givens Estate, was started in 1984. Over a period of several years, 92 homes were constructed. The community is governed by the Covenants and Rules and Regulations of the Park Avenue Property Owners Association, Inc. (PAPOA) to insure that all homeowners work in harmony to protect the values of their homes. The PAPOA Board consists of seven Board members who must be homeowners in the community.
Park Avenue has several amenities for all ages. A clubhouse which homeowners can use by reservation free of charge, a swimming pool, a tennis court with a pickle ball set-up and a basketball backboard. On the second Friday of the “even” months, there is a “Thank God it’s Friday” (TGIF) event at the clubhouse in the evening. All homeowners are invited. PAPOA provides food and the participants bring their own beverages.
