Once a quiet farming community, Burke has grown rapidly since the 1970s when Fairfax County approved a 1,400-acre planned community called Burke Center. In the Burke area a diversity of housing styles and prices can be found. Among the choices are single-family homes in one of Burke Center’s planned neighborhoods, large estate homes on five-acre parcels in the Burke Lake Park area, and townhouses or rental apartments surrounded by the natural beauty of park-like settings.
Because of its easy access to major commuter roads as well as Virginia Railway Express, which maintains a station at Burke Center, this area is a favorite location for commuters to the District of Columbia. Excellent local shopping is available at Burke Center and two regional malls that are close to home. Suburban life here is rich with opportunities for recreation and leisure activity. The area offers more than 20 parks, dozens of playgrounds and community pools. One park, Burke Lake Park, provides almost 900 acres for camping, fishing, boating, and golf, as well as the attractions of a miniature train, carousel, an ice-cream parlor, and nature trails.
