Baranick was trying to build in the Saxapahaw area. The locals didn't want it and he couldn't find investors. Real estate anywhere near RTP is going to be really expensive. Anywhere between Raleigh and Greensboro would have the population to support a small park, but the NIMBY is strong here. If you go east of Raleigh with a park, I think you lose a lot of potential customers.
Could this area support a small park? I think so. Will anyone ever be able to build one? Doubtful.
