Golf Comes In Two Sizes In Lake Ridge, Woodbridge VA

Lake Ridge Golf Courses

One of the unique advantages of living in Lake Ridge is that Prince William County very thoughtfully built a park and marina within the subdivision.

As you can see they even added miniature golf for people at my level of expertise. The Lake Ridge golf course is one of four public courses in the county.




Since not everyone in Lake Ridge is a golfer, children and adults can enjoy one or all of our five swimming pools and a Sprayground for little Lake Ridgers.



There is more good news about Lake Ridge

Lake Ridge is one of the ten largest subdivisions in the United States.
- 38,000 residents
- 7,000 + residences
- 4,400 acres
- 1,200 acres of it are treed common ground
- located on the 2,100 acre Occoquan Reservoir




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 at Old 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

Karen,

I believe Lake Ridge is a shining example of the economies of scale available, when it comes to providing amenities in a planned community. What a desirable community.

Best,

Steve

Karen, Lake Ridge looks like a very nice course.  Can't say that miniature golf is my game, but it can be lots of fun.
