The several developments in Holly Springs are very kid centered. They have water parks on site!
Which subdivisions are these? I'm very interested. I have a 1 and 4 year old, and we're planning a move to the area.
Thanks.

Here is one, for example. There are a few subdivisions in Holly Springs, like this one, with "Sunset" in the name. They seem to have a lot of ammenities.

The Kraft YMCA located on Holly Springs Rd has a new outside waterpark (I believe opened last year) and the brand new gym is scheduled to open this April. I thought you should know this in case you can't find a house in a specific subdivision with a waterpark that fits your needs (price, lot size, sq ft, style, etc). I loved the waterpark in Sunset Oaks mentioned above but the subdivision didn't fit our needs. Also, the YMCA has amazing kids programs for your kids (soccer, tball, camps, track out programs, preschool, etc) year round. I currently work out at the YMCA in Cary and am amazed as I run on the indoor track and look down on the basketball courts to see all the kids activities going on. We will be transfering to the Kraft YMCA when it opens in April as we live in Fuquay Varina and it is only about a 10 minute drive to the new Y. We can't wait! Remember a waterpark is only open about 3 months of the year! Here is a web link to the new YMCA if you are purchasing in that area. I couldn't find a picture of the waterpark but your realtor can drive you by to see it and to see the distance from the homes you are looking at. Good luck!

Yes. But it costs an arm and a leg to join

I almost choked when I saw the family price was $250 to join and another $86/month fee.

It's a YMCA for chrissakes.

It is expensive to join, I felt the same way. It is less expensive if you do not get a family membership, you can get a membership with one parent and dependents. That is what I did, the joining fee is less, and the monthly fee is something like 49 a month? I paid for the whole thing in one plop so I would not have to pay every month and it was something around 700 dollars.

Granted, for us, our neighborhood doesn't have a pool, and this was mainly for pool use in the summer and working out for me. I knew my husband would rarely go.

We live in a neighborhood just down the street from Sunset Oaks. We have a great pool it's included in the annual homeowners dues which are about $300-$400 a year. Nothing more.

We're Cary residents, with an Apex address & 5 minutes (if that) from Holly Springs. The neighborhood is The Park at West Lake

Here's a picture of the pool:

You might think a pool like that would be super crowded, but that's just not the case. The base school for the neighborhood is year round. So while there is a nice crowd most days at the pool it's not too bad. Just the right amount of kids.
