63 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — TRIANGLE NC | VOLUME 17 — ISSUE 2 SURROUNDING CITIES & TOWNS The town of Knightdale boasts a mere nine- minute commute to the capital city of Raleigh. Its prime location attracts young, affluent (medium house-hold income $70,512), and well-educated home owners. The town is the home of the U.S. Army Reserve Center with 200-400 reservists on most weekends. Families get outside at Knightdale Station Park. The space is a popular venue for outdoor concerts, soccer and multi-purpose fields, walking/cycling trails, a dog park, farmers' market and other activities. Just 25 minutes from downtown Raleigh, Wendell is a charming small town with tree lined streets and a relaxed pace of life. From a Saturday farmer's market to miles of scenic walking trails at Wendell Park and Wendell Falls, the bucolic community is perfect for families. Events throughout the year include the Wendell Harvest Festival, International Food Festival, and the ProTown BMX Show. With its proximity to Raleigh, Wendell enjoys the benefit of being a bedroom community and continues to reflect the growth in the Triangle area yet maintains its small town feel. For more outdoor fun, venture out to Roberston Millpond Preserve where you can rent kayaks and paddle your way along Buffalo Creek. Enjoy miles of scenic walking trails, disc golf, tennis, basketball, a new playground and a dog park for your four-legged friends at Wendell Park. Rolesville is a small town nestled in northeastern Wake County just outside the capital city of Raleigh. It is the second oldest town in Wake County and one of the fastest growing towns in the State of North Carolina for the past several years. The ever-evolving community has adapted to higher technology to keep citizens informed. Blackboard Connect is a mass notification system that allows the Town to contact all businesses and residents in the community within minutes of an emergency. It also allows them to notify everyone about important community meetings or other community-related information. Rolesville yet maintains it's small town vibe with family friendly events and festivals. The all day BBQ and Bands festival happens in September on Main Street with food, vendors, children's games and music by several local bands.
