Village On the Green Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Village on the Green is a slightly older townhouse community in Raleigh, North Carolina and part of the 27612 zip code. Homes in this neighborhood are quite distinct with an alternating use of brick and siding exteriors that make the buildings really stand out. For active residents who enjoy going for walks or taking their dogs out, a sidewalk goes throughout the community.
One of the benefits of this part of town is how centrally located it is for a variety of different types of schools. Parents have a number of educational options for their children, whether it be public, Montessori, Magnet, or religious-based private schools. These options allow parents to have better control over how their children are educated without having to drive all that far, as all of these are available within one to two miles. For the younger children, there is even a daycare center at the mouth of the neighborhood, making the commute to work incredibly easy.
South of Village on the Green is a nice little park along Shelly Lake, off of Millbrook Road. The park itself is light on amenities, but offers access and plenty of parking for visitors to beautiful Shelly Lake. The area around the lake is home to a wide variety of animals, including birds, deer, turtles, fish, and more. Many people come here to be at peace with nature, take pictures, or simply watch the wildlife. Others come to enjoy one of the best trails in the region, Greenway Trail. This trail is a favorite for walkers, runners, and cyclists, as it provides several miles of scenic exercise. The trail goes throughout the park and surrounding neighborhoods.
Shopping and dining here consists of mostly small, locally owned operations; however, the Crabtree Valley Mall is only a few miles away, providing considerably more variety.
