Carlton Square is a tiny neighborhood in Raleigh, N.C. The neighborhood consists of one major street, Carlton Square Place. The major roadways surrounding the neighborhood include Glen Eden Drive, which connects directly to Carlton Square Place to the north, Blue Ridge Road to the southeast, and Edwards Mill Road to the northwest.

Carlton Square is known for being extremely secluded. The lack of major traffic roadways makes it the perfect place to raise a family with young children. Many of the homes have large driveways, heavily wooded backgrounds, and plenty of room to move around. Neighbors are close but far enough way to feel a great deal of privacy. It is common to see area kids playing in the driveway, riding their bikes, and playing basketball in the street. The quiet roads also make it a great place to start a walk, run, or bicycle ride through the neighborhood. It is common to find people walking their dogs through the area as well.
Area residents that are looking for a longer run or bicycle drive typically head toward the northwest to Laurel Hills Park. This park is popular throughout the neighborhood, especially for area youth. There are two baseball fields, multiple basketball courts, a soccer field, and a large playground. The baseball fields are hugely popular with area youth baseball leagues, and the large parking lot easily accommodates the crowds of parents that come to watch their friends and family play. The soccer field is frequently filled with younger plays kicking around a soccer ball or even playing a game of touch football.
