Walnut Creek Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Living among eighty-two acres of lush-green forest may sound like a dream to most people, but not to Walnut Creek residents. This paradise setting lies just minutes from downtown Raleigh and the local shopping centers in Cary. North Carolina State University is close by with the Capital Area Transit Bus Line (CAT) at the disposal of students and employees.
Dog friendly Raleigh knows how much residents love their dogs and provide many off leash parks throughout the community. Hop in the car with your canine and drive a short distance to Bark Park. The humans have as much fun as their dogs at Bark Park. It’s a great way to meet like-minded people in the community.
For recreation, residents drive a short distance to Lake Johnson. This 150 acre lake surrounded by 300 acres of land offers 3.5 miles of paved greenway hiking trails and 1.9 miles of unpaved trails. The Parks and Recreation Department of Raleigh also offers classes and special events. Johnson Lake is the place to come for the “fisherpeople” in the family. Cast a line and catch largemouth bass, shell cracker, crappie, bream, catfish, and carp.
Walnut Creek residents might not want to leave their neighborhood with its dog friendly walking trails and streets. Residents can get their exercise taking an after dinner stroll through their own tree-laden streets, stopping to talk to friendly neighbors along the way. This neighborhood appeals to refined, sophisticated people who like trendy shopping malls, recreation and culture. They like to enjoy these amenities in a people friendly, dog friendly setting and that’s what they get.
