Townes of Southgate Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Townes of Southgate neighborhood refers to a small sliver of land in southern Raleigh, North Carolina, roughly four miles from the downtown area. This community is located east of Garner Road, accessible via Wilson Street on the west and Ricochet Drive on the east. The communities of South Bend and Cyman Commons are located to the south and Crosstowne is situated to the north. Townes Of Southgate is part of Wake County, in the 27610 zip code area.
The area immediately surrounding this community is largely residential. Although some commercial offerings can be found here, there aren’t a great many attractions nearby. However, downtown Raleigh is just a 10-minute drive to the north, easily accessible via nearby Garner Road, and offering plenty to see and do.
Cultural attractions and entertainment options in downtown Raleigh include the state capitol building, Marbles Kids Museum, and the Museum of Natural Sciences, all situated near West Edenton Street.
The downtown area is also host to a handful of higher education options. Smaller, private universities found here include Shaw University, Peace College, Meredith College, and St. Augustine’s College. However, the real gem in Raleigh’s crown is North Carolina State University, consistently recognized at a national level as one of the top universities in the country.
Additional attractions in the downtown area, still just minutes from the Townes Of Southgate neighborhood, include the Raleigh Country Club, Fred Fletcher Park, and Chavis Park. The latter, located along South Boundary Street, offers a swimming pool, playing fields, playground, trails, tennis courts, and picnic areas.
