There are only a few homes that actually have a Lake view but going for a walk or run in the winter months when the leaves are down you’ll see glimpses of the lake. Part of the Raleigh Parks System, Lake Wheeler Park is a picturesque location that blends a 650-acre lake (water reservoir) and 150-acres of park and land buffer surrounding the lake.
