The Hook Road neighborhood off Fairway Drive is a sweet little pocket of homes built in the 1960s. In case the road names don’t give it away, this small community backs up to the Hidden Creek Country Club golf course. Those are some very nice views from back decks.
The Hook Road homes are classic contemporary style, most with three or four bedrooms, are typically two story, and many have brick exteriors.
The homes line only one side of the street. The inner space of the horseshoe houses a baseball diamond for little league, RA tennis courts, and a basketball court provide entertainment all summer. And there is plenty of room among that green space to lay out a blanket for a family picnic.
But that may change.
Reston Association is currently assessing how the Hook Road Recreation Area could be improved, and the time for community input is now (specifically tomorrow night, October 10, and October 24). RA’s goal is to present a proposal to the RA Board of Directors early next year.
The Hook Road Recreation Area was originally developed in 1965 with tennis and basketball amenities added in 1973. Since that time, the recreation area has remained relatively unchanged.
In 2016, the RA board approved a new capital project methodology called “Full Facility Enhancements,” focuses on revitalizing facilities as a singular unit instead of replacing individual amenities. If you use the recreation area, or just want to know what the plan is, attend the meetings. You can find out the locations on the RA website.
