We live in North Potomac – zip code 20878, in a friendly neighborhood called Potomac Grove filled with families who care about their area.
On a warm, sunny day, people are out tending their gardens and front yards, walking their dogs. Everyone stops to say hello and the biggest complaint is that all the friendly conversations make the lawn work take longer!
We really love how our kids can walk to Quince Orchard High School and library, which are only a half mile away. We often walk or ride our bikes to a very close and beautiful park called “Quince Knolls,” which has large fields for flag football, soccer and baseball. It also has tennis and basketball courts and a toddler jungle gym. It is full of large shady trees and tucked away in a quiet neighborhood.
There is a “Women’s Club” in this area that is really nice. It’s called the Potomac Chase Women’s Club (PCWC). For $25 per year, you can join and they have monthly social events. It has over 100 members with women of all ages and with kids of all ages. It’s a great way to meet other women in the area. It is also fun because any time someone needs a referral for a repair, a doctor, anything at all, they send out an email to the entire yahoo group. I have found so many good sources through this network. I have never lived somewhere where they had this wonderful network – it’s a really involved area.
When the weather is nice, so many people take walks around the area. It feels so alive and cozy. And people in this area work hard to maintain their homes. You rarely find overgrown, unkempt yards. Our homeowner’s association is always on top of maintenance, we are among the first neighborhoods to get plowed and the garbage trucks are very reliable.
People care about knowing one another and helping out with the kids. My neighbors are so generous – they never say “no” to buying popcorn from my boy scout son or cookies from the neighborhood girl scouts.
We really love the comfortable feeling of our neighborhood, and being a short drive to all the services we need.
