Exploring Burke Centre
A Burke, Virginia Community
Burke Centre, run by the Burke Centre Conservancy, is a residential community in Fairfax County with a small town feel. The over 5,800 homes in the community are tucked away by the Fairfax County Parkway, away from most of the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia, but in an ideal location that is close enough to everything you need. The community itself has multiple shopping centers, and an incredible amount of amenities, making it one of the most coveted places to live in Northern Virginia.
Burke Centre is divided up into 5 different neighborhoods (Oaks, Landings, Commons, Ponds, Woods) and several different sub neighborhoods also known as clusters. While all these divisions are technically the same neighborhood, each one offers different traits that makes them special. These subsections consist of a variety of different types of living including single family homes, townhomes, and condos.
Burke Centre is jam packed with amenities and special features, open to all residents of any cluster. There are 5 different community centers that feature swimming pools, playgrounds and park areas. There are many different community ponds, some with windmills that are picturesque places to have a picnic and enjoy nature. The entire community is packed with trails, several through the forest making for wonderful evenings of recreation around the neighborhood. Tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, tot lots and much much more await you in Burke Centre.
One of the reasons why homeowners love living in Burke Centre is because of the Burke Centre VRE located in the community. This commuter train takes residents into DC for work each day, and has bus service to and from as well as a huge parking deck and free parking. There is even a special paved trail that leads from parts of the neighborhood to the station. On Saturdays the train station turns into a seasonal farmers market.
The community is also close to area hot spots including Old Town Fairfax and the new Springfield Town Center Mall.
