What about Hope Valley Farms? (or is that considered to be the same as "Hope Valley"?) There are lots & lots of places to walk....and they have a pool and a playground.

I don't have children, but there seem to be quite a few of them around the neighborhood.

I'd try to buy in Watts-Hillandale or Trinity Park. millions of kids, great parks, schools that people like, and older homes with character.

Not really. I have students from all over. I even have two students that don't even live in Durham County. And get this, one of their parents is a knock off but the district still allows him to come to the school and disrupt without paying the out of district fee which is a joke b/c it is something like $2800 (or whatever) but according to budgets it costs over $3000 a year to send a kid to school in Durham.

Even Woodlake? Maybe you are just limiting yourself b/c you saw yourself living there. There are other neighborhoods around to pick from that this shouldn't be a problem.
