Lake Christopher Homes Association
Lake Christopher Homes Association

Welcome!

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.

Lake Christopher Homes Association supports the Federal government's request to practice social distancing, as well as the Virginia State government's phased opening schedule.  These government actions were put in place to help slow the spread of coronavirus. 

 

Current information on the pandemic can be found on the city's coronavirus website.  Meanwhile, Lake Christopher's private parks remain open to Lake Christopher residents, with the following additional guidelines:

 

1.  Social Distancing at all parks is required.

 

2.  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).

 

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

 

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

 

 

If you Swim in the Lake...

 

Remember, there are no lifeguards on duty.  See the Parks and Lake page for more information.

Vandalism

 

In 2019 we saw an increase in acts of property damage and vandalism in our parks. We’ve had multiple instances of graffiti on the docks and structures, beer cans in the porta-potty, and ultimately the porta-potty thrown into the lake.


These are costly “pranks” which require repairs, cost additional fees, and in the case of the porta-potty, another round of water quality testing.  Often times (but not always) these acts are perpetrated by non-residents who shouldn’t be using the parks in the first place.

 

If you see something, call Citywide. Trust your instincts – let the Citywide patrol sort out the details. If a suspicious group at the park at night are indeed residents just enjoying the evening, they’ll welcome the Citywide visit!

 

Christopher Landing, Christoher Beach, Christopher Narrows and Christopher Woods are not public City parks.  They are for the exclusive use of Lake Christopher residents (homeowners & renters), and their accompanied guests.  They are maintained with funds from our association dues.

 

 

If you observe an issue at the parks, do not hesitate to contact:

 

•    Citywide Security, at 757-652-4467
•    The Police Non-Emergency number, at 757-385-5000
•    For an Emergency always call 911

 

Please contact a board member if you have questions or feedback.
