Woodlawn Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Woodlawn neighborhood of Raleigh, North Carolina, is a fairly new subdivision with homes built in the last ten to fourteen years. It is a great place to raise a family, since there is a speed limit of only 25 miles per hour. It is a common sight to see children playing on the front lawns and crossing the streets.
Woodlawn is located just off Leesville Road near the Circle K, just north of the I-540. This location is one from which residents have easy access to shopping, dining, the airport, and to all parts of the city. Even though the homes are close to the expressway, there is very little traffic noise because of the buffer zone between the neighborhood and the highway.
Residents of Woodlawn delight in the neighborhood pool where the children and parents can swim in the summer months. The pool is also available for rent for parties, especially for birthday parties. Children under the age of 12 have unlimited use of the playground and the older children can enjoy games of basketball, tennis and volleyball on the courts. There is no need to join a gym for exercise for those choosing to live in this location.

For example, October is the month for a giant yard sale, Halloween activities and a family picnic. During December, there are numerous Christmas activities for all ages to enjoy.
