This is a nice area that is located centrally in downtown Asheville. Many festivals and craft fairs are held in the square. It's also a good spot to find a public bathroom. Check out Pack's Tavern while there.

During the summer months I really enjoy the live music and taking my daughter to play in the water. So relaxing infact I fell asleep once on the grass in the park and no one bothered me.

Pack Square is a delightful little open space in Asheville’s urban core. I’ve watched it evolve over the decades, and they’ve got it right now. If the weather cooperates, take a stroll and then find a bench and enjoy the people-watching. The Pack Square area of Asheville is very good-looking and historically interesting, so if the weather is a bit... More

Went with our 2 year old son who loved playing in the water. Fun spot when it's hot! Close to a lot of restaurants and shopping.

So many shops. Mostly artsy. Lots of galleries and restaurants. A one time visit is enough. Should add a touristy store.

I loved the mix of sculpture/walls and open space. We were there in the evening, and enjoyed sitting on the benches while we watched everyone walk by.

A must see for travelers visiting Asheville. Many Karmic based stores, museums, great restaurants and art galleries. On a warm October afternoon also a great place to people watch. Many buskers and entertainers as well. Several large parking garages are in the area and make the experience easy on the weary driver.

Only went there at night on our way back to the parking deck. Large and lovely square with a splash attraction for kids, a lovely amphitheater, and a Veteran's Memorial.
