​Two of Wake County's Parks (Historic Oak View County Park and Historic Yates Mill County Park) are members of the Raleigh Heritage Trail, a group of local historic and cultural sites that promotes the understanding of the history of the greater Raleigh area through the joint participation of Raleigh historic sites, local museums, and related facilities. The goal of the Raleigh Heritage Trail is to better serve residents and visitors through educational programming and the sharing of ideas, resources and marketing among its member institutions.
