Darien Place Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Darien Place is located in a highly residential area in Wilson, North Carolina. Wilson, a small community within Raleigh, is a much more laid-back area set away from the hustle and bustle of big-city living.
Darien Place is a heavily wooded area providing excellent scenery for the quiet residential streets. Neighborhood homes have good-sized backyards and space to get out and move around. The additional space means fewer residents and less traffic on the streets, making them perfect for many residents looking for a quiet lifestyle. The low traffic in the area also means the neighborhood is perfect for couples walking their dogs, children playing in the street, and, of course, runners and cyclists.
Many area residents will even make the short walk to Forest Hills Park, which is a small neighborhood park located on the corner of Forest Hills Road and Lakeside Drive. The small park features a large open field that is popular for kite flying, baseball, soccer, and even for many area dog owners who often meet up in the park. For younger children, there is a nice-sized playground located next to the clubhouse where area residents enjoy swimming on hot summer days. Additionally, there are several tennis courts at the park that are in regular use.
Just a short drive down Forest Hills Road to the east is a popular block for area youth athletics. Located at the corner of Ward Boulevard and Branch Street is a wide open space with several marked soccer fields. These fields are a popular destination during soccer season for youth athletics. The area has several different-sized fields, making it perfect for soccer players from a wide variety of age groups.
Near the soccer fields is also the shopping district for the area, which contains several small shops, a Walgreens, and a Rite-Aid.
