Knightdale Station Amenities

Neighborhood Amenities that are both forward thinking,
convenient for residents and built around lifestyle.

Phase II is well under way with tennis courts, an amphitheater, farmers market, and arboretum.


Phase one brought the railroad themed playground,  running and walking trails, a dog park, and athletic fields (known now as Knightdale Station Park.) Phase two is nearing completion including open-air structures, a water-misting tower, the beginning phase of the amphitheater, and additional parking.

Knightdale Station Park is much more than just a recreation center convenient to residents of the Knightdale Station community. It represents the forward thinking by the Town of Knightdale that is responsible for the successful development of the community and all that it offers residents and visitors alike. In 2011 the town had the opportunity to purchase a tract of land in downtown Knightdale, a nursery owned by a former Knightdale mayor, and plans for Knightdale Station were set in motion. Phase I opened in September 2013 and it’s been full speed ahead ever since!

The 76-acre municipal park offers two miles of paved trails, the town’s first dog park, athletic fields, and a playground that has to be seen to be believed. The extensive farm and train-themed play area is a reminder of Knightdale’s railroad and agricultural past. There’s a train with tunnel and slides, a working railroad crossing with lights and bells, a 2-story silo, a play chicken coop, a corral of bouncy horses, a cow to climb on—and lots more to inspire the imagination.

There are bathrooms right next to the playground and a large picnic shelter perfect for birthday parties. A vine trellis right next to the playground is designed for stroller parking. And there’s plenty of parking for cars too. The two miles of trails go through groves of trees and along a boardwalk on a pond. Both Knightdale High School and East Wake Academy plan to use the park’s trails for cross country runs.

Phase II is well under way with tennis courts, an amphitheater, farmers market, and arboretum.

The Triangle’s preeminent private school system


“Education is more than the mere accumulation facts.
It is a journey where students come to know and pursue truth.”

The Triangle’s preeminent private school system is opening its first eastern Wake County campus in Knightdale Station. Thales Academy’s sixth Triangle campus, the Knightdale Station K-5 elementary school will open for the 2016 academic year with plans for future expansion. (The site for a future high school has already been identified.)

Thales Academy began in 2007 with 30 students and the goal of providing an affordable world class education. Within two years Thales enrolled 500 students at two permanent locations (Apex and Wake Forest) and opened its Raleigh campus in 2010 followed by Rolesville in 2014. Thales Academy currently serves more than 1100 students in the Triangle.

The academies are named for Thales of Miletus (624 BC–546 BC) who is regarded by many as the Father of the Sciences and of Western Philosophy. Thales Academies follow his example of classical excellence. Students at Thales Academies receive an unparalleled breadth and depth of education, as Founder and Chairman Robert Luddy believes that “Education is more than the mere accumulation facts. It is a journey where students come to know and pursue truth.”
