Hermitage Park residents have a convenient suburban lifestyle, enjoying easy driving access to hearby shopping, services, medical care, entertainment venues, and employment centers. The commute to Research Triangle Park is easy. The neighborhood is near great shopping at the corner of Chapel Hill Road and NW Cary Parkway but gets a somewhat Car Dependent Walk Score Rating:
Homes range from 1400 to 1900 square feet on cozy low-maintenance lots along the pretty streets, which are lined with classic white picket fences.
Additionally, Hermitage Park homeowners enjoy a lovely setting among mature trees, in a convenient Cary location. The trail around the neighborhood pond is a pleasant amenity.

The Veterans Freedom Park in Cary NC is located at the corner of Cary Parkway and North Harrison Avenue, on the north side of Cary. It was dedicated July 1, 2003, but has not been completed to date. I rather like it as a quiet place, as it is, for reflection.
The lush grounds of the park, and the size of 11 acres help the visitor focus on quiet and peace, rather than the busy N Harrison Avenue thoroughfare. That removal from the daily hubbub seemes fitting, in accordance with appreciation and remembrance of the sacrifices made by so many.
Veterans Freedom Park has been spurred by commitment of SAS Institute to donate the 11 acres to the National Veterans Freedom Park Foundation and to pay to install a 120 foot granite spire memorial, in addition to the existing monuments.
MacArthur Park PUD in Cary, NC, is centrally located between the SW Cary Parkway and Davis Drive, two major transportation arteries that offer good access to many amenities and attractions throughout the Triangle.
MacArthur Park is a PUD, a Planned Unit Development, within the Parkway PUD. PUDs are communities wherein the developer indicates location of features such as churches or commercial or retail development prior to commencement of development and home construction. The objective is to have a functioning planned community with few surprises for residents. MacArthur Park and Parkway PUDs accomplished this with planning for retail like the Fresh Market plaza, office condos, churches, parks and trails.
Ten neighborhoods comprise MacArthur Park PUD:
Avalon, Benwick, Camelot, Canterbury, Excalibur, Gleneagles, Gralyn, MacArthur Park, Sherborne. and Southwick
The homes and neighborhoods vary broadly from modest starter homes to tract-built neighborhoods and up to fine custom homes.
Directly across the Cary Parkway from the YMCA and centered in the MacArthur Park Pud is a lovely7.5 acre open space park which accommodates the Town of Cary’s White Oak Creek Greenway and a neighborhood play area. The White Oak Creek Greenway connects MacArthur Park to Bond Park.
