The History and Growth of Glenmere

Developed in the early 2010s, Glenmere is one of Knightdale's newest communities. Situated just off Interstate 540, it spans over 100 acres of scenic North Carolina land.

The community was thoughtfully designed to provide an active, engaging lifestyle for residents.

Glenmere's first phase focused on establishing amenities like the junior Olympic-sized pool, cabana, tot lots, and open play areas.

Home construction soon followed in the popular Davidson and Cates neighborhoods. Over the years, additional sections have been added as Glenmere continues to grow.

At the heart of Glenmere lies its impressive recreational amenities, rivaling those of luxury resorts. The junior Olympic pool serves as a refreshing oasis during warm summer days.

Families gather in the poolside cabana, complete with cozy fireplace, for community events. Tot lots and open play areas provide safe places for children to play.

Future plans include walking trails that connect throughout Glenmere and tie into Wake County's greenway system. These amenities foster an active, engaging lifestyle for residents of all ages.
