3. Azalea FALLS

How many Raleigh natives would be surprised to know that we have waterfalls within city limits, or rare mountain laurels? This generous gift of land near Azalea Drive by David and Judy Tung has made it possible for the City of Oaks Foundation to protect over nine acres of north-facing slopes of overlooking Crabtree Creek, preserving spectacular views of the surrounding area for neighbors and visitors.

Waterfalls in the city

The Foundation is working with the City of Raleigh to allow visitor access to the property through an extension of the Capital Area Greenway System, which will not only connect visitors to the natural beauty of the property but will also create a vital link in the system that will once day connect Raleigh’s greenway trails to Umstead Forest and beyond.
