Lake Park is a beautiful, medium-sized neighborhood located in North Raleigh, conveniently near Crabtree Valley Mall and not far from RDU International Airport and Research Triangle Park. It is also less than 15 mintues from downtown Raleigh. The homes were built in the late 70’s to early 80’s, though they come in a large variety of architectural styles and may have been updated.
The lots are wooded and on rolling terrain, giving homes a wonderful tranquil and private setting. There are sidewalks along every street and multiple paths that lead right to Shelley Lake, as it sits right next to the neighborhood. Such close proximity to the lake also allows residents to enjoy several recreational activities, such as hiking, fishing, or walking ad biking along the Capital Area Greenway Trails.
Residents can also rent paddle boats or enjoy a soccer match at the nearby soccer and multi-purpose athletic fields. There is also an art center and a playground at Shelley Lake that Lake Park residents can access. Lake Park also features a community center that highlights a swim club and hosts annual activities for the whole family. If recreational activities weren’t enough, residents are also not far from multiple shopping districts, restaurants, and entertainment. Besides Crabtree Valley Mall, North Hills is roughly 10 minutes away, along with multiple grocery stores and specialty shops. North Hills also hosts annual and seasonal events, including Saturday morning farmer’s markets and live music sessions.
