Knightdale has experienced an impressive 28 percent growth rate over the past 10 years, bringing its population to nearly 17,000 in 2018. Located just 9 miles from Raleigh, this small town is one of Triangle’s fastest growing. Annual events include the Easter Eggstraordinaire, Fourth of July celebration and Christmas on First Avenue. Knightdale ranked 13th on the National Council for Home Safety and Security’s 2018 list of “The Safest Cities in North Carolina.”

Knightdale residents will have even more to enjoy in the near future, according to Jonas Silver, public information officer for the Town of Knightdale. The 73-acre Knightdale Station Park just started phase three of construction, which will add a permanent amphitheater, veterans memorial, restaurants and local shops. In addition, the Mingo Creek extension will connect Knightdale Station Park to Mingo Creek Park, the Neuse River Trail and, ultimately, the Capital Area Greenway System.
