Hickory Meadows Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Hickory Meadows is a neighborhood in Raleigh and is within the 27610 zip code. The neighborhood has some large and stately trees but is not so heavily planted that it is overgrown with forest. There is enough vegetation for residents to still view wild animals and have a bit of privacy. Additionally, the houses are spaced far enough apart that there is less of a cramped feeling than that found in many other communities. This neighborhood is accessed from Poole Road.
Less than a half mile from Hickory Meadows is Carolina Lake. The lake is popular when it comes to water recreation. Boating, rafting, and swimming are favorite pastimes. Fishing is also available, not only in the lake, but also in Neuse River, which is located about a half mile to the east. The river is fairly shallow, yet it can still be a treat for the fly fisherman. Since both the lake and the river have several species of fish to be caught, both have broad appeal when it comes to fishermen. Hickory Meadows residents enjoy both sites for animal watching or simply as places to have a picnic.
