Welcome to the Glen Forest Community Website

Our community is situated within the Bailey's Crossroads area of Fairfax County, Virginia. We are located approximately 5 miles south of Washington, DC, the Pentagon and Reagan National Airport. It is roughly bounded by Leesburg Pike, Glen Carlyn Road, the Fairfax/Arlington County lines, and the Crossroads Center Shopping area. It comprises about 400 homes built mostly in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. The primary entrance is via Glen Forest Drive (off Leesburg Pike) that ends at the Glen Forest Elementary School. Other entrances are one off Glen Carlyn Rd onto Magnolia Ave and one off Carlin Springs Rd onto 6th Rd. Individuals and families within our neighborhood are invited to join our Association for a modest annual fee. Association benefits include use of the park and picnic area, membership on committees, and voting rights at our annual Spring meeting. The Association's greatest asset is a 6.8 acre park with swimming pool/bathhouse. Long Branch Creek runs the length of the park and the pool cannot be seen from any street. The pool also requires the greatest resources and is managed by our 12-member Board of Directors with help from other volunteers. Our licensed lifeguards are provided by a pool management company and we meet all Fairfax County strict safety standards. Pool membership is open to individuals and families both within and outside our neighborhood footprint on a seasonal basis. We have room for 125 family memberships and presently there is no waiting list.
