If you are thinking of making a move to a more carefree lifestyle in an active adult community, Potomac Ridge in Lansdowne Woods may well be the right place for you (and your pets). Our residents include people who work full- or part-time, the newly-retired and long-time retirees. Many residents moved here from nearby communities in Virginia and Maryland while others have come from across the country to retire near family or to take advantage of the extraordinary quality of life in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. area. Potomac Ridge residents enjoy an active lifestyle. We plan and conduct a variety of events within the building, such as movie nights, potlucks or holiday catered dinners, lectures, parties and club activities. We take local trips, and some do foreign travel. Our residents enjoy walking or biking the many trails in the area. Many also participate in the full array of sports, fitness, cultural and entertainment activities offered through Lansdowne Woods.
