Why Raise Your Kids In Wilmington

Safe, fun, and friendly – need we say more? Porters Neck Plantation was developed with families in mind.


Room to grow,
places to go

Our exclusive, planned community offers kid-friendly clubs, bicycling paths, a gated entrance, 24 hour security and southern hospitality to ensure young families feel right at home in Porters Neck Plantation. A childhood worth remembering, filled with safe neighborhood play areas, parks, learning adventures and days on the water, is in store for our youngest residents. And with daycares and award winning public and private schools just minutes away, living in the Plantation means less time spent carpooling and more time spent enjoying life’s most precious moments with our little ones.

If you desire an active family lifestyle, there are plenty of opportunities for more action outside of our gates, too! The landscape in Wilmington, North Carolina, features a number of parks and walking trails. A few of our favorites: Greenfield Lake Park and Gardens, Hugh MacRae Park, and Smith Creek Park. Additional options for ideal family walking excursions include The Loop at Wrightsville Beach and the Riverwalk in downtown Wilmington. Some locations also offer frisbee golf, kayaking, and paddle boarding! You can also lace up your sneakers and hop on your bike for the 15-mile Gary Shell Cross-City Trail.
