Living in Loving Burke
Burke is home to oodles of great restaurants, bars, shops, and theaters to make for a hip, happening nightlife.
There is always somewhere exciting to take your date, friends, family, or yourself on your mellow, introspective solo night out. During the day, Burkers love to get active at the popular Burke Lake Park. This large, recreational park is the heart of Burke. With its 218-acre man-made lake and plenty of shoreline to explore there are tons of ways to experience nature here. Rent a rowboat for a serene outing/lake-singing excursion (Sebastian and company not included with your rowboat rental), take a hike along the water’s edge, or spend the night camping out under the stars. Kind of a cool stay-cation idea, huh? This park is extremely family-friendly and has some great attractions for the kids including three different playgrounds, a miniature train, a carousel, and an ice cream parlor (yum). There are also plenty of picnic areas, trails, an amphitheater, a miniature golf course for the minis, and an 18-hole golf course for the maxis. What doesn’t this park have? Bored people: that’s what they don’t have! In addition to Burke Lake, the community has a few other community centers with indoor pools, activities, and classes for everyone in the family.
Burke Centre, a 1700-acre planned residential community, can also be found in Burke. This award-winning community consists of almost 6,000 homes that are divided into 5 neighborhoods: The Commons, The Landings, The Oaks, The Ponds, and The Woods. The Centre has its own playgrounds and parks and throws special events and festivals for the community like Fall Festival which is held every September.
The Burke Farmers’ Market goes on every Saturday morning from May through October. Renters should be sure to make their way out to the market so they can get their fresh fruits and veggies (and maybe a few special treats from other vendors). The spirited Burke Nursery and Garden Center puts up the popular Pumpkin Playground every October. Residents have a frighteningly good time here going down the ghost slide, hopping on the truck for a hayride, and carving jack-o-lanterns.
Move to Burke and join a family-friendly community that enjoys living a quiet, country-style life while still having easy access to the nation’s capital city. Ready for your fun fact? Burke is named after a man named Silas Burke who was a 19th century farmer, merchant, and local politician. You can pay a visit to good old Silas’s house when you move here though you can’t visit Silas, himself anymore. He’s, shall we say, moved on.
