Hunters Cove Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Hunters Cove is a residential neighborhood of Raleigh.
Cobblestone streets welcome residents and visitors to the Moore Square District. The district is part of Downtown Raleigh and is close to Hunters Cove. It is a hub for the city’s art and cultural entertainment. Artspace, a non-profit visual art center, anchors the district’s art attractions. Since 1986, Artspace has had art spaces with artist studios. Here artists may interact with the public. The center also has educational programs for children and adults. Exhibits by regional, national, and international artists are displayed here. The Historic City Market was established in 1914 as a well-known neighborhood market for produce, poultry, and fish. With the invention of the supermarket, the future of City Market was uncertain until it was purchased in the 1990s and developed into a district for shopping, fine dining, and cultural activities.
As a quiet break from the shopping and dining of the Moore Square District, Moore Park is located close to the district. A small park with old oak trees and landscaped gardens, a massive acorn statue is located in the middle of the park, reminding visitors that Raleigh is known as “The City of Oaks.” Local legend says visitors should touch the acorn statue for good luck.
The Marbles Kids Museum and the IMAX Theatre at Marbles Kids Museum is close to the Moore Square District for family friendly activities. Allow at least a two-hour visit to the museum and its spacious, toy-filled recreation room. The IMAX Theatre shows educational documentaries and Hollywood movies for all ages.
Hunters Cove is close to the 650-acre Lake Wheeler and its 150-acre park. Boating and fishing, with a boat launch and other facilities are offered to anglers. The ADA-approved park has picnicking and volleyball. Programs and classes are at the Waterfront Program Center.
