“really awesome historic attraction!”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Historic Oakview is a really cool collection of origional buildings nestled in the middle of an industrial park. You can go inside almost all the buildings and even pet Goats. Be sure to check out the visitors center as well.

“Peaceful, historic, rural location minutes from loud, modern, urban setting”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Great place to see what NC farms were like a century ago including an old farmhouse, barn, outdoor kitchen, herb garden, mature pecan trees and a few live animals. Bring a picnic and enjoy.

“Nice City Park”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

It is an antebellum home with a nice surrounding piece of land and amenities. Nice piece of the country in the city. Only thing that takes away from it is being so close to the beltline and you can hear the traffic.

“Great History and Great Festivals”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

I really like to history of this farm and how it came to be a park and history museum. I also go to as many of the events they hold as I can. Antique auto shows, Jazz fest, story telling, heritage day and my favorite, sleigh rides and cider for the holidays. Clearly a hidden gem just outside the belt line.

“I loved this place”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

The Oak View County Park is a good lok at what Raleigh once was. The farm buildings and equipment is preserved great! The goats are a cool thing for the kids to see. No a/c the out buildings only the main house!!!!
