Several ponds are found quite close to Graedon, and Lake Wheeler Park is located about a half mile away. Lake Wheeler Park provides a great way to get away. It was created in the late 50s, covers about 150 acres, and provides access to Lake Wheeler. The park also has boat launching facilities, as well as offering boat rentals. There are even picnic areas.
Lake Wheeler covers over 600 acres and is a primary water supply for Raleigh. It is a great fishing destination. Many people have had great success fishing for large mouth bass, crappie, carp and catfish in this lake. The fish can attain sizable proportions. The lake also provides other water recreation. This includes water skiing, sailing, boating, swimming, canoeing, and rowing. Graedon is within a couple miles of Lake Benson, as well.
For the golfing enthusiast, Garner Country Club is next to Lake Benson. This features a 9-hole course that is well taken care of.
The neighborhood of Graedon is surrounded by dense forests of lush trees. This provides many opportunities for close encounters with wildlife, in particular, birds, squirrels, and deer. Animal watchers and photographers can have a lot of fun taking pictures of the often abundant wild animals. In addition, Wake County, which contains this neighborhood, offers many places to hunt deer. Deer hunters won’t find much fault in this county.
Though the community is only around a mile from US Highway 401, and less than ten from Interstate 40, the trees also create a buffer zone. It is quite difficult to think of this as close to a city, once a person is in the neighborhood of Graedon.
