Think Lake Ridge Park and Marina For Summer Fun For All Ages

Lake Ridge is a large subdivision in eastern Prince William County. It has:

  • 38,000 residents
  • 3,200 acres of developed land plus
  • 1,200 acres of treed common land throughout the subdivision plus
  • it sits along the 2,100 acre Occoquan Reservoir

Lake Ridge also surrounds a large tract of land along the reservoir that is owned by the Prince William County Park Authority.

The park authority used the land to develop the county's only park, golf course and marina within a subdivision.
The entrance to it is in Lake Ridge, but it is accessible to all county residents. In addition to the activities highlighted by the following video Lake Ridge Park and Marina also offers

  • golf instruction for all age groups including small children
  • day camps
  • canoe and kayak classes



Since there is no swimming at the reservoir, Lake Ridge residents have pools spread throughout the subdivision. Join me for a tour




There are no tennis courts at the park, but Lake Ridge residents have their own. Let's take a quick look.




All About Lake Ridge





COMMUTING
  • Express bus service to the Pentagon and Washington, DC is available within Lake Ridge and at the entrance to Lake Ridge in the VDOT Commuter Lot
  • Carpools usually meet at the VDOT Commuter Lot at the entrance to Lake Ridge - see Omnimatch for more specific details
  • Slugging (some erroneously call it hitching a ride which it is) is a result of the need to use HOV lanes on the I-95 as much as possible. Commuters form a line at a designated Slug Line Stop in Lake Ridge - the VDOT Commuter at the Lake Ridge entrance. For example, a driver will pull up headed for the Pentagon, but needs one more passenger to qualify for HOV-3. The first person in line going to the Pentagon will join the others in the car and away they go. It's free commuting for the slugger and gives the driver availability to HOV lanes on I-95 - win win!!
  • Train The Virginia Railway Express Woodbridge Station with rail service to Springfield, Crystal City and Union Station in Washington, DC is approximately a 20 minute drive from Lake Ridge in the morning rush hour.
  • At Springfield you can switch to Metrorail that gives you access to the entire National Capital Area subway system.
  • Local buses run regulary throughout the Greater Woodbridge area as well as other areas of Prince William County. Lake Ridge is one of the communities served by Omnilink
  • MCB Quantico is less than 30 minutes by car
  • Fort Belvoir is approximately 30 minutes by car
  • Prince William County Commuting VIDEO
SCHOOLS

One of the popular features about Lake Ridge is that all schools attended by Lake Ridge children are in Lake Ridge. No elementary school is more than 5 or 6 minutes from the student's home



LIBRARIES
SHOPPING
  • Tacketts Mill located at the entrance to Lake Ridge was the first of the three centers. In addition to the normal complement of retail stores it includes commercial office space. It's here you'll find McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins
  • Lake Ridge Commons atOld Bridge Road and Hedges Run Drive is about midway through Lake Ridge. It has our one and only Starbucks
  • Festival at Old Bridge is also on Old Bridge Road near the western end of Lake Ridge at Smoketown Road. It has the Lake Ridge US Post Office Annex

Lake Ridge Park looks like it has something for everyone! The only bummer -- no swimming in the resevoir. But the pools make up for it! :)))

Karen: You guys have outdone yourselves! These videos are just great, right down to the background music! Based on this post alone, this neighborhood would be on my list of must see communities if I was a buyer in your area.

Gold star from me because you have comprehensively covered this neighborhood and shown that you are surely the real estate expert that both sellers or buyers can rely on in Woodbridge and the surrounding counties.
