Green Level is an unincorporated community in southwestern Wake County, North Carolina, United States. It was founded c. 1800 and is one of the oldest surviving crossroads communities in the county.[citation needed] Although historically connected to the town of Apex, Green Level now lies within the municipal jurisdiction of the town of Cary.

One primary community building is the Cloer Nursery. Cloer Nursery is located near Green Level Baptist Church at the crossroads of Green Level Church Road and Green Level Road West. The remains of the old convenience store are still standing and in use. It was formerly a gas station, but when the law mandated stations to switch out old gas tanks, the Phillips 66 closed. The only commercial businesses in the area are Cloer Nursery and the Green Level Gift Shop.

The core of the community has been designated the Green Level Historic District in 2001.[1]
