Lake Christopher Homes Association
Lake Christopher Homes Association


The Lake Christopher community surrounds beautiful Lake Christopher in the Centerville District of Virginia Beach, Virginia. We are near the intersection of Indian River Road and Kempsville Road, about 1 mile from I-64 and Regent University. There are 361 homes and four private parks in the Lake Christopher community, surrounding our 60 acre private lake. Public schools serving Lake Christopher are Tallwood High School, Brandon Middle School, and Indian Lakes Elementary School.

The Lake Christopher Homes Association (LCHA) consists of every person who owns a lot in Lake Christopher. This association of homeowners, which is a corporation, has existed since 1974. There is a nine member Board of Directors which serves the association, and this nine member board is comprised of four officers; President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer; and five members-at-large.


We’ve all heard of Santa’s famous “midnight sleigh ride”, but Santa has lots of other ways to get around!  Once again the Garden Club arranged for the big guy to visit Lake Christopher a few days before Christmas for his equally famous “golf cart drive-by”!


We have another date change due to Santa's busy schedule!    The new date is Saturday, December 10th, starting at 2 pm from Christopher Landing.  From there, Santa will head towards Captain's Run and drive throughout the community.


Check Facebook for details on his route so you can be ready with your cameras to visit with Santa and his elf!  If you miss Santa just head to the "Big Park".  Santa will finish his ride at Christopher Landing for pictures, probably around 3:00 to 3:30 pm.

The Garden Club will be out in the community judging for the Halloween Decoration Contest on Friday, October 28th, and the Christmas Holiday Decoration Contest on Friday, December 23rd.


Make sure you have your holiday lights powered up on those days so the judges can see your decorations in their full splendor!

It shall be unlawful for any person as defined in § 1-230 of the Code of Virginia to place, distribute, or allow the placement of food, minerals, carrion, trash, or similar substances when it attracts any species of wildlife in such numbers or circumstances to cause property damage, endanger any person or wildlife, or create a public health concern. Upon notification by department personnel, any such person shall be in violation of this section if the placing, distribution, or presence of such food, minerals, carrion, trash, or similar substances continues. This section shall not be construed to restrict bona fide agronomic plantings (including wildlife food plots), bona fide distribution of food to livestock, or wildlife management activities conducted or authorized by the department or U.S. government agencies with wildlife management responsibilities.

COVID-19 Mitigation Measures are still something we need to be aware of.  Current information on measures in place in Virginia Beach can be found on the city's coronavirus website


Lake Christopher's parks are not public city parks.  Our private parks remain open to Lake Christopher residents, with the following additional guidelines:


1.  Social Distancing at all parks is encouraged.


2.  All play structures and swing sets are use at your own risk.  They are not cleaned and/or sanitized after use.


Lake Christopher Parks are for the exclusive use of Lake Christopher homeowners, renters, and their accompanied guests. No more than 4 guests per accompanying resident (maximum of 8 per home).


We rely on the common sense of our residents to give each other space when using the parks.  Complete guidelines can be found on the parks and lake page of this site.


The Legacy Archive - Blasts from the Past!


We’ve scanned and uploaded what we found so far from the 1980’s and 1990’s.  Click on the Legacy Newsletter (main menu) to navigate to the archives.  We hope you'll enjoy perusing these issues, going back to May 1981!

Although the May/June 1981 edition of the LCHA Newsletter is oldest in our archive, we have reason to believe there were newsletters published before then, and still others that would fill gaps in our records.  We’re hoping copies of these old issues survived, perhaps in a box in someone's attic, or in the back of a closet! 


If you are one of the many original or 'first years' owners living in the community, you may have an old newsletter or two in a folder with documents from the early days.  Even if you’re a newer member of the community, one of those boxes of papers may have been left behind by a previous owner for you to discover!  If you find anything, please contact the editor!  We’d love to scan whatever you have.

Trees and Shrubs!
