It is not unusual for people to think Lynnwood is a subdivision since the sign at the primary entrance on Old Bridge Road is different than the signs at the entry to the other sections of Lake Ridge. But Lynnwood really is different since it is the only section of Lake ridge with homes sited on lots that are both heavily treed and at least one half acre.
There were three builders responsible for the majority of the homes
- Long (our Lynnwood home was built by Long Homes)
The final few homes on Valleywood Drive were built by VanMetre
One of the popular features about Lake Ridge is that all schools attended by Lake Ridge children are in Lake Ridge. No elementary school is more than 5 or 6 minutes from the student’s home. In the case of Lynnwood, all three grade level schools are within one or two blocks of the entrance to Lynnwood.Since school boundaries may be altered in the future we have included a link to the public school locator.

- Slugging (some erroneously call it hitching a ride which it is) is a result of the need to use HOV lanes on the I-95 as much as possible. Commuters form a line at a designated Slug Line Stop in Lake Ridge– the VDOT Commuter at the Lake Ridge entrance. For example, a driver will pull up headed for the Pentagon, but needs one more passenger to qualify for HOV-3. The first person in line going to the Pentagon will join the others in the car and away they go. It’s free commuting for the slugger and gives the driver availability to HOV lanes on I-95 – win win!!
