Garner - "A great place to be"

Garner is a growing community located at the intersection of U.S. 70 and I-40, Garner is approximately 8 miles south of Raleigh, NC’s capital city. Residents understand that they are closer to downtown Raleigh than actual Raleigh residents who live on the outskirts of the city, but not so close as to intrude on the small-town atmosphere that makes Garner special. This diverse community has many amenities to offer its residents. With over 350 acres of parkland, a thriving business economy, safe and beautiful neighborhoods, quality schools, great community events, shopping and local entertainment venues, Garner has something for everyone to enjoy.

With the increased population and residential growth, Garner has burgeoned in business and service establishments, both within the corporation limits and the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the town. The people and the sense of community that joins Garner together and creates a place where all people feel welcome, neighborliness and the spirit of cooperation of the citizens and community is reknown. It doesn’t take a newcomer long to find activities that will engage their particular interest and help them meet great, interesting and caring people.
