A Growing Residential Community

Wake Forest has grown in recent years into a popular residential community in the Raleigh area, in part due to its excellent location close to major highways, Downtown Raleigh, and Research Triangle Park. New construction homes and neighborhoods are being constructed to meet demands of home buyers who are moving to this area. Wake Forest residents find that there are plenty of attractions located near their homes, from the public Paschal Golf Club to the expansive Falls Lake State Recreation Area and everything in between. 


Year-Round Community Fun

In such a community-centered town, you can often participate in several festivals and attend recurring events throughout the year. Experience the best of Wake Forest as a resident.
