Welcome to Daventry

Daventry is a residential subdivision located on 312 acres in Fairfax Virginia. Composed of 212 single-family homes, 512 townhomes & 160 condominiums.

Daventry residents enjoy excellent leisure facilities in the pool (with an award-winning Swim Team), lighted tennis courts, four tot lots, and miles of trails.

We are bordered on the east by the Fairfax Cross-County Trail, which connects to Accotink Lake via a new paved path running under Keene Mill Road. There are other paths on our west side which go thru our single-family homes.

Just one mile from I95, 495 and 395, our residents have easy access to the Washington area via 395 and the HOV lanes. There is a carpool staging area at our entrance servicing the Daventry-Pentagon route. On our south side is immediate access to the Fairfax County Parkway.

Offering a quiet suburban living experience with many amenities and a strong sense of community, Daventry is one of Northern Virginia's most desirable neighborhoods.

Labor Day Pool Party
Monday, September 1st, 1-5pm

Again in 2014 the Recreation Committee sponsors a pool party to say farewell to summer on Labor Day. There will be music, food, and games! The event will include the annual Daventry Cardboard Regatta!

For this event, teams between 2-4 sailors must bring a homemade boat made of cardboard (no wood, no Styrofoam). There will be two competitions: Best Show Boat (creativity) and Fastest Boat (must complete a 100M course in the water for time!). As promised, here are the construction rules:

  • Boats must be made of corrugated cardboard
  • You may use tape, water-soluble caulk or silicon sealant, water-based wood glue, and water-soluble outdoor latex-based primer/paint
  • No foam, no plastic, and no wood allowed in building your boat! Exception: you may use wooden paddles or you may use wood to make paddles or oars.
  • You may not wrap the hull in tape, plastic, shrink wrap or any other material.
  • There are no restrictions placed on decorative materials as long as they do not aid in the flotation or propulsion of the boat and do not create a safety hazard.
  • Stay away from stuff that is toxic, either for you or for the environment.
  • Boats will be subject to a technical inspection before the race and must adhere to these guidelines.
  • Any boat not following these guidelines will be disqualified.

If you intend on putting a boat together for the regatta, please let me know so that I can start planning for the number of race teams! I would really like to get at least one team from each neighborhood! Questions? Ask me!

Dog Dive
Monday, September 1st, 7-9pm
