Welcome to Rolesville, a hidden gem in the northeastern corner of Wake County with easy connection to Raleigh and home to more than 8,000 full-time residents. Visitors will encounter a warm, welcoming spirit, small-town pride and genuine community as they explore greenway trails, parks, historic sites and sunken treasures. As the second-oldest town in Wake County, Rolesville’s roots run deep. Established in 1837, the area has held fast to its engaging Southern charm.
Enjoy the outdoor activities available at Main Street Park in the middle of downtown Rolesville, complete with four rentable shelters, a gazebo, open play field, playground and more than a mile of greenway trails. Take a hike along Mill Bridge Nature Park, home to a 200-seat amphitheater and trails that connect with the Wake Forest Parks and Recreation greenways. Linger at the Little House Museum and Gallery to learn about the history of Rolesville. Or you can also take a walk—or should we say dive—on the wild side and explore Fantasy Lake Scuba Park, an astounding 50-acre, one-billion-gallon stone quarry that has become a local mecca for scuba divers.
