Wondering What's Around?

Parks and recreation

Perhaps one of the biggest draws to Sutherland has to be Falls Lake, a 12,000+ acre reservoir in Wake Forest and North Raleigh. Here, visitors can boat, swim, fish, or just hike the trails at the neighboring recreational area. If you want to have some fun with kids or furry friends, head to E. Carroll Joyner Park in the heart of Downtown Wake Forest. And for those who love working on their swing, check out the Hasentree Club and Paschal Golf Club

Year-round events

Wake Forest's close-knit Southern charm makes it a hotspot for Triangle buyers—so it should come as no surprise that this community hosts tons of events all year-round. If you want to live like a Wake Forest local, get to know your neighbors at the famous HerbFest or gather with neighbors each May for Meet in the Street. And for the ultimate summer party, stop by White Street for Beach Night on White!

Local schools

Even if you don't have children of your own, it's worth factoring public schools into your home search—they can actually influence property values over time. Luckily, Sutherland's younger residents attend Wake County Public Schools, one of the largest and top-rated districts in the Carolinas. Currently, Sutherland is zoned for  Pleasant Union Elementary, Wakefield Middle, and Wakefield High.
