The Dr. Wesley Grant, Sr. Southside Center (Southside Center), located at 285 Livingston Street in Asheville, is the City of Asheville’s newest community center. It is centrally located near several public housing neighborhoods and the River Arts District. The City intends to build out the community center over a period of 3-5 years to become Asheville’s most full-service recreation center offering both indoor and outdoor recreation programs, health and wellness resources, and education for all ages.
