History of Cary Park
Cary Park was the first large planned unit development (PUD) to move into the countryside in West Cary. The developer was East West Partners, the same company that developed Meadowmont in Chapel Hill and Woodcroft in Durham and many others in the area.It was in early 2000 when I first visited Cary Park. The 28 acre lake was surrounded by farmland with just a few streets and model homes under construction. My clients wondered where we were as we drove through miles of country. It’s changed a lot today.
The neighborhood has continued to be developed over the past decade with a mix of townhomes, condos, apartments and single family homes. The neighborhood, like many of the big PUD’s, is divided into smaller neighborhoods typically built out by different builders buying a section. There are a mixture of regional and national builders as well as local custom builders.
