Kings Park-Another Generation Sees The Value Of This Springfield Neighborhood

Kings Park HomesIt isn't hard to figure out what the developer of Kings Park was planning when they laid out the plan for the community and the homes. With one look at the street names Thames, Victoria, Trafalgar and Cromwell among others you might think you have made a trip back to England. Then when you add the names of the five original models; King, Queen, Princess, Duke and Duchess, you realize absolutely there is a royal connection!

My family bought our very first home in Kings Park in 1981.  Over the last few weekends I had a wonderful couple out looking for their first home and they have focused in on Kings Park.  The same things that were attracted my family to the neighborhood, mature trees, green space, parks, community pool and easy commuting are the same things this couple sees as well.

Since the neighborhood was first built over 40 years ago it has been popular with anyone looking for easy access to the Pentagon, Fort Belvoir or access to DC. Children attend schools in the Lake Braddock School Pyramid and both Northern Virginia Community College and George Mason University are close by. Public bus transportation, a VRE station and slug lines are easy to get to from anywhere in the neighborhood. Homeowners can walk to the Kings Park Shopping Center and even the Kings Park Library branch of the Fairfax County Library System.

When you want to take a break you walk or ride your bike through two different "back" entrances to Lake Accotink or for anyone who likes the challenge of dirt biking the nearby trails through Wakefield Park are considered some of the best in the area. Wakefield Park is also the location for the Audrey Moore Recreation Center where you will find an indoor pool and popular fitness center. During the summer Lake Accotink Park hosts free Friday night summertime concerts which are an absolute hit with everyone. Music ranges through swing, jazz, pop and rock. If you haven't seen your neighbors for a few days chances are you will find them there with a picnic basket and folding chairs

Rob-when my kids were little Kings Park was where they called home.  Nice treed lots which you don't find in with new construction.
