Once known as the 'River Farm' owned by George Washington, Stratford Landing is home to over 700 households.

PEOPLE

Our community is home to young families with small children, retirees, active servicemen and women, veterans, working couples, homeowners and renters. Some folks have lived here their whole lives, others are 'transplants' from other states, while some have moved back in order to raise their children where they grew up. We welcome new residents to our community, and hope you will participate in the many activities and opportunities our neighborhood has to offer.

PLACE

Our neighborhood is primarily comprised of homes built in the late 60's and 70's, some of which have been uniquely modernized and updated. It is characterized by long, winding sidewalks, large trees, big back yards, playgrounds, a local pool, an elementary school, lots of dogs, runners, walkers, children playing, people who enjoy spending time outside, bikers accessing the Mount Vernon Trail, and lots of flowers and green foliage in the spring. We also have a number of organized community activities and events that make this place extremely special.

POSSIBILITIES

Living here provides many conveniences, whether you simply need to run an errand or have visitors in town for the weekend. We are strategically located near valuable amenities, including the Hollin Hall Shopping Center, which is home to Safeway grocery store and other local retailers. We're only a few miles north of George Washington's Mount Vernon, a 10-minute drive to Old Town, Alexandria and 15-miles south of Washington, D.C.

100% volunteer-led, membership organization, serving our community

The Stratford Landing Citizens Association (SLCA) is an integral part of our community that is committed to maintaining the well-being and character of our neighborhood and the individuals it serves. SLCA is not a Homeowner's Association nor is membership a requirement for living here. That said, there are many added benefits to being part of this organization, including community-based events for children, the ability to communicate and interface directly with Fairfax County leadership and officials on planning and zoning, the environment and public safety. Most important, SCLA provides opportunities to get to know other community members and how we all work together to make our neighborhood a great place to live, work and thrive!

Located in the heart of our community

We are fortunate to have a pool that serves our neighborhood, run by the Stratford Recreation Association (SRA). The SRA sponsors excellent swimming, diving and tennis teams. The SRA Pool and associated amenities open Memorial Day and close Labor Day each year. A number of our community members opt-in for pool memberships, which can be very refreshing for families during the hot summer months here in Northern Virginia. The pool also serves the neighboring communities of Riverside Gardens and Plymouth Haven, so you're bound to meet new friends while spending time with old ones!

Little Hunting Creek Watershed

Many residents in our neighborhood have direct access and direct views to Little Hunting Creek, a primary tributary for the Potomac River. The Little Hunting Creek watershed is just over 7,000 acres. The headwaters of Little Hunting Creek rise in Huntley Meadows Park, and the creek flows southeast to its confluence with the Potomac River (just east of George Washington's Historic Mount Vernon Estate). Little Hunting Creek is a valuable amenity for our neighborhood. The Friends of Little Hunting Creek organize a clean-up each year that brings our community together to care for this wonderful resource. To learn more, please visit the Friends of Little Hunting Creek website.
