Knightdale This eastern Wake County town of about 12,000 residents has experienced a population boom over the past decade. This is primarily due to the town’s easy access to Interstate 440 and Interstate 540 and its proximity to North Raleigh, as well as the fact that busy N.C. Highway 64 cuts right through town. Its location near the Neuse River provides excellent recreational opportunities, as do the Eugene F. Harper Memorial Park, Harper Park Community Center, Knightdale Recreation Center and Knightdale Environmental Park. And its access to world-class health care makes it a desirable place to live, with the 40,000-square-foot Duke Medical Plaza Knightdale offering a range of high-quality services and Rex Healthcare of Knightdale offering urgent care seven days a week.
Homes and communities continue to spring up throughout the Town of Knightdale, from Parkside and Planter’s Walk to Mingo Creek and Legacy Oaks subdivisions. Knightdale’s location within Wake County makes it part of the highly regarded Wake County Public School System, which makes it ideal for young families raising children. Its quiet pace of life makes it an excellent place to live for families and retirees as well. It is close enough to Raleigh to enjoy all of its amenities, yet far enough away that you feel like you are living in a quiet yet growing country town.
