Valley Springs Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located just southeast of Downtown Raleigh, Valley Springs is a wilderness unto itself. The proximity of the city is hidden by the heavily wooded area providing a sense of privacy without hampering convenience. Residents are minutes away from the Carolina Biblical Gardens and the Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School. Both are within an easy walking distance. The neighborhood offers easy access to Interstate 440 (Raleigh Beltline) and Interstate 40 (Knightdale Bypass).
A few miles to the southeast lies beautiful Lake Benson. The lake offers many boating and fishing opportunities and is stocked with crappie, bream and bass. The park area has walking and jogging trails, wide-open spaces, playgrounds, picnic areas and a beautiful shoreline area. Bird watching is a favorite activity here, and many bird watching groups have outings near the lake. The city uses the large, open field for the annual Fourth of July celebration for fireworks. The park also offers grilling areas and boat rentals.
Also just to the southwest is the Garner Towne Square shopping center. The center offers many retail outlets, restaurants, and a large movie theater. There are also grocery and drug stores available. The shopping center is conveniently located on the corner of Highway 70 and Timber Drive, and is just a short drive from Valley Springs.
Downtown Raleigh is only a few miles away, and offers a variety of eateries, museums, retail shopping, parks, historical monuments and theaters. The city offers many sporting events as well as cultural events year-round, and is less than 10 minutes from Valley Springs.
