Brambleton is also home to two Winwood[8] childcare centers and two Chesterbrook Academy pre-schools.[9]

History[edit]

Brambleton is located at the site of the former community of Royville, which existed as early as 1908 at the intersection of Belmont Ridge Road and Creighton Road. Developing the Brambleton planned community began in earnest in the spring of 1999, immediately after Brambleton Group L.L.C., a division of Soave Real Estate,[10] acquired the property. Road improvements were necessary along Route 607/772 to connect Brambleton via the Loudoun County Parkway to Exit 7 of the Dulles Greenway.

Residents in the development are members of the Brambleton Community Association, a homeowners association.[11]

Town Center[edit]

The Town Center of Brambleton contains over 50 retail stores, restaurants, entertainment, doctors, public spaces and commercial offices.[12] The Town Center serves as the location for the community's annual Sizzlin' Summer Concerts, Farmers' Market,[13] Race Brambleton Series[14] and other events and festivals.[15]
