I lived in Richmond about 8 years ago and may be moving back. We really like Woodlake and the idea of having lake access. We have 1 middle school kid and 1 elementary school kid. We are really looking for a neighborhood that is friendly - where people and kids are outside and interacting with each other. Does Woodlake fit the bill? Are there other neighborhoods we should look at?

One concern is whether an older neighborhood like this still has a lot of kids in it or whether it is starting to be mostly empty nesters.

Thanks

Woodlake is pretty much the same, but the surrounding area has drastically changed over the past 8 years. When is the last time you have been there?

Check out Walton Park and Salisbury off of Midlothian Trpk.

Hull Street is really built up now. Ever since they built the Short Pump Mall on Broad St, Hull St. has been sorta competing with them. Now there is highway 288 to connect Hull, Midlo and Broad and 64.

Woodlake is a pretty neat neighborhood. Bear in mind that the lake (a major reservoir) doesn't allow for gas powered craft... but sailing is certainly popular.

Traffic near Woodlake during rush hour is a nightmare. It can take 30-45 minutes to get from Old Hundred Road to Woodlake in the evening/afternoon. The neigborhood is wonderful if you don't mind the traffic.
