NC park system gains thousands of acres, shares plans for new Pisgah location

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — New state parks are coming to North Carolina, according to our partners at WLOS News in Asheville.

In 2023, that state’s park system hosted more than 20 million visitors. WLOS reports the system also got almost 3,000 of state park land last year.

The largest gains were for what will be their newest park: Pisgah View State Park in western North Carolina.

Officials began the master planning process for the new park last year. Later this month they’ll be asking for public input, WLOS says.
