Farmington Woods Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Farmington Woods neighborhood of Raleigh, North Carolina lies south of Rock Quarry Road and west of Interstate 40 (the Tom Bradshaw Freeway.) It is one of Raleigh’s residential areas with multiple streets and cul-de-sacs, but it’s close to several public and private schools.
Just three miles north of Farmington Woods is the city’s Worthdale Park. Located on Cooper Road, the 36 acres of parkland include trails, a playground, and a community center. The park also has six lighted tennis courts.
Chavis Park is about three miles northwest of Farmington Woods and is slightly larger than Worthdale Park. Chavis also has tennis facilities as well as lighted ball fields, an outdoor track, and a public pool. The Allan Herschell Carousel is located at Chavis Park.
Raleigh parks have more than outdoor activities to offer visitors. The historic Borden Building sits within the boundaries of the Fred Fletcher Park, about seven miles north of the Farmington Woods neighborhood. The Borden Building, built in 1900, is one of the remaining buildings on the former property of the Methodist Home for Children. Raleigh purchased the building in 1982.
Two miles from the Borden Building is Pullen Park. This city park sits adjacent to the campus of North Carolina State University. Within the park is the Pullen Arts Center. The center hosts community art programs for all ages, including classes for painting, pottery, fiber arts, and more. The Arts Center also hosts gallery exhibits and a kids’ art camp every summer.
The arts are alive and thriving in downtown Raleigh, too. From galleries to music to theatre, the arts take center stage. The neighborhood of Farmington Woods is only six miles from Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum on Martin Street and five miles from the Burning Coal Theatre Company.
