Local Information


Knightdale is a great place for new beginnings. That's the takeaway from a comprehensive branding campaign that included input from hundreds of engaged Knightdale residents.

The research shows us that Knightdale has a lot going for it:

  • It is one of the fastest-growing communities in the Triangle metro region.
  • The median age (30.8) is the youngest in Wake County.
  • Just nine miles from the heart of downtown Raleigh and a short drive to Research Triangle Park, Knightdale is close to everything.

It is an affordable alternative to other Raleigh-area towns, Knightdale is also slower-paced and boasts a very low crime rate.

It’s Parks and Recreation Department provides abundant recreational activities including youth sports programs, summer camps, a community pool and more.
