During the past 20 years, Holly Springs has transformed itself into one of the most attractive communities in the Research Triangle Region. While it is home to small businesses and multi-national firms-including the $600 million Novartis flu vaccine manufacturing facility-you'll find that Holly Springs remains a family-centered community. The character of Holly Springs truly can be sensed at local events, including the downtown Farmers Market, Hollyfest (an annual Town festival), and Christmas Parade along Main Street.
Its Parks and Recreation Department offers a diversity of parks, a recreation center, a cultural arts center, a lake and retreat center, greenways, and picnic shelters. Programming includes art, drama, music, athletics, nature and outdoor education, cooking, after-school and track-out care, fitness and wellness, dance, special interest, and specialized recreation as well as summer camps and senior programs. For the golfer, the town of Holly Springs is home to two private courses: Devils Ridge, part of the Sunset Ridge community, and 12 Oaks, part of the 687-acre 12 Oaks community.
