Why Do Residents Choose Fuquay Varina?


Parks & Recreation

It's easy to get outside and play when you live in Fuquay! We couldn't talk about the area's many parks and outdoor spaces without mentioning the famous Fuquay Mineral Spring Park. Believed to have special healing powers, the Park is a lovingly restored testament to Fuquay's unique natural history. Tour the restored springhouse, stroll through the grounds, and revel in the lovely atmosphere of this hidden Triangle treasure.

South Park is another must-see Fuquay Varina attraction. With over 25 acres of expertly maintained grounds, it's no wonder many of Fuquay's most popular community events are held here. It offers two illuminated softball fields, a baseball field, a batting cage, two playgrounds, hiking trails, and more. However, one of the most exciting parts of South Park is the Splash Pad, a 6,000 square foot pad with more than 35 water features.

While it has the appearance of a small town, Fuquay is big on fun! Residents have a wide variety of selection when it comes to things like parks, Friday night outings, breweries, restaurants, and more! Fuquay is always growing and adding new things to do.

If you're a beer enthusiast, it can be hard to pick between an evening spent at Aviator Brewing or the Fainting Goat Brewing Company — so why not try both? Each brewery offers phenomenal service and an eclectic array of expertly crafted local brews.
