Tucked away among the trees off of Old Bridge Road in Prince William County is the community of Lake Ridge. With over 7000 detached homes, townhomes and condominiums a buyer can find just about any type of home at a price that fits their budget within Lake Ridge.
As you drive through each of the different sections of Lake Ridge you will get a true sense of "small town America." Frequent community events including Youth Flag Football, T-Ball, Summer Camps, Yard Sales, and Holiday Parades give everyone young and old a chance to meet their neighbors.
With multiple grocery stores, plenty of places to eat and a nice mixture of small shops residents of Lake Ridge don't have to drive far to find everyday necessities. When the need arises Lake Ridge is only a few miles from the huge Potomac Mills Outlet Mall, Ikea, Costco, Lowes and Home Depot.
If your family includes children there are 5 elementary schools, 1 middle school and 1 high school all within the community. Many children can walk to school and for the others it is a short bus ride. There are also a number of pre-schools located within the boundaries of the community as well.

If you are a runner join the Ridge Runners Club, launch a small boat Hooes Run Boat Ramp, play tennis at one of the seven courts, swim at one of the five Lake Ridge pools or join one of the many other clubs that meet at one of the two community centers.
