Maybrook Forest

Once destined to be the second phase of a residential development project, a conservation-minded real estate developer instead donated this patch of hardwood forest high ground to the City of Oaks Foundation, and the Foundation is working with Raleigh to create a needed neighborhood park largely left in its natural state. Maybrook Forest represents a classic win-win-win resolution: the developer realized significant tax savings, the Foundation (and the City) received a valuable land donation, and the surrounding neighborhoods can look forward to a new park.
