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 the 1970's. There is a nine member Board of Directors which governs the association, and of this nine member board there are the offices of President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.




Due to a second weekend of wet weather, and soggy conditions at the park, the Garden Club regrets to annonce that Santa in the Park is cancelled.

Park Sign-In Process


The board is aware of an increase of incidents at our parks this season.  These are primarily an abuse (or disregard) of park regulations, and a general lack of civility on the part of some park users.  In many cases, this involves users of the parks who are not residents or guests of residents, and who therefore should not be using the park.


Lake Christopher’s parks are not public City parks.  They are for the exclusive use of Lake Christopher homeowners, renters, and their accompanied guests, and are maintained with funds from our association dues.


To aid with enforcement of the “park use” rule, there is now a sign-in process with the park attendant for all users of the parks.  This is a common practice at private facilities like ours, and is intended to improve the quality of the park experience for residents and their guests.

Please support the park attendants by signing in, as they are following direction. We don't want to add new rules, but rather find ways help ensure current rules are followed for everybody’s benefit.   To help out, don’t wait for the park attendants to come to you; please go to them and simply sign in.  If you have guests, they will also sign in, or you will need to provide some guest information.  


The complete list of park regulations can be found at the Parks and Lake page

•    Citywide Security, at 757-312-9911
•    The Police Non-Emergency number, at 757-385-5000
•    For an Emergency always call 911
