Golden Forest Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Golden Forest is a Raleigh neighborhood set among trees and other plants, so its name is apt. This greenery gives a sense of spaciousness to the neighborhood and provides its homes with a sense of privacy.
Access is from Poole Road to the south, and Interstate 440 is less than a mile from this North Carolina community. Residents also have recreational opportunities within their grasp only a short distance from home.
Anderson Point Park is about a half mile away from the community. This park features great trails for walking and observing nature. The park is a combination of grass, pine, and hardwood forest, making a great habitat for birds and animals. Anderson Point is a favorite for residents and visitors because of potential animal viewing and photography adventures. Among bird species, there are waxwings, meadowlarks, flickers, owls, nuthatches, and wrens in the park. A number of these make their homes in the trees of Golden Forest as well.
For neighborhood residents who prefer water recreation, Carolina Lake is even closer than the park. The lake is a great place to catch fish, get wet, or go boating. It has easy public access and is a hit for the people who live nearby. For those who would rather do a bit of river fishing, the Neuse River is about a half mile away. Though it is shallow for the most part, it also provides lots of sport and a challenge for Golden Forest residents and others.
There are also a number of ponds and lakes within a couple miles of the neighborhood that provide places to fish, picnic, or to get wet. Golden Forest residents have many options when it comes to outdoor attractions.
