Aerial View of Lake Ridge
In 1969, Ridge Development Corporation, along with the late Kenneth Thompson, developed what was once a remote cluster of homes into today’s planned community of Lake Ridge. In February of 1972, with its Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions recorded in Prince William County, Virginia, the Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association was established.
The community is set on 4,700 acres of common ground with 1,200 acres maintained by the Association, consisting of 7,278 property units that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, 2 apartment complexes and commercial properties. In addition, the Association offers a variety of amenities to include 5 pools and a spray ground, a boat ramp, community centers for rent exclusively for LRPRA Members only , sports fields, playgrounds, fitness stations and other outdoor recreational courts including tennis, pickleball, basketball, multi-use and volleyball.
Ken Thompson’s vision of Lake Ridge extended beyond building homes into building a community. Thousands of children have grown up on the local soccer fields and the community schools with many of these children coming back to Lake Ridge years later to raise their own families. And it is this mix of people from young families starting out to older individuals retiring in place that makes Lake Ridge a diverse and interesting place that so many people enjoy calling home. *Some information is excerpted from an August 2007 Lake Ridge Today interview with Ken Thompson.
