Timeframe for Changes

  • Governor Northam has now officially delayed implementation of his Phase One plan for Northern Virginia until midnight on Thursday, May 28th. The Board of Directors met May 14th and discussed the Association’s phased plan to reopen amenities and facilities which may start as early as Northern VA’s Phase 2.

Pools & Kayak Use

  • We do not anticipate pools opening before late June. While there is a possibility that pools may not open this season, that has not been decided at this time. The Board is awaiting further guidelines from the local and state government. We will provide updates as available.  

Community Amenities (play grounds, tree houses, pavilions, dog parks, etc.)
