What's New


A Message from SHWCA President Steve Zarick

Hello!  My name is Steve Zarick.  I am excited to introduce myself as the new president of SHWCA.  My family moved to this neighborhood in the spring of 2018.  My wife, Megan, and I have two children: Sawyer (8) and Molly (3).  We have two energetic and playful dogs (Kuzy & Pepper) who love to greet everyone walking past our house on the corner of Sprucedale & Fern.  Our house is easily identifiable this time of year because of the large azalea bush blooming on the corner where we often find neighbors stopping for a photo or just admiring the flowers.  My family was drawn to Sleepy Hollow Woods because we could sense that this was a place to put down our roots and create a home.  We wanted to live where we could know and trust our neighbors.  Somewhere with a real sense of community.  Spending the last few years “socially distanced” from each other has made that difficult.  My primary goal in becoming involved with the civic association is to help restore that feeling of community and hopefully better connect those who have lived here for years with so many of our new neighbors who arrived when it was not easy to get out and meet new people.  There is an excellent opportunity coming up very soon for us to come together as a community.  Please mark your calendars for Saturday, May 13th with the return of our annual picnic & yard sale.  The association will provide advertising and signs for the yard sale.  The picnic will follow at St Alban’s beginning at 3PM.  There will be games and activities for the whole family to enjoy.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages will be covered at no cost to members.  Please plan to bring a dish to share with your neighbors.  It should be great time to see old friends and make new ones right here at Sleepy Hollow Woods.  This is all very new to me, and I am eager for input and support from others.  If you are interested in helping out in any way or have any thoughts or input to share, please feel free to email me at  I hope you will consider volunteering and supporting SHWCA moving forward!

Hello and welcome to the

Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association.


Sleepy Hollow Woods is a neighborhood of 377 homes (including Oak Knoll Estates, which is part of the Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association area) located in the Mason District of Fairfax County.  The community was founded in 1959, and remains one of the premier sites in the Northern Virginia area.  We are located in Annandale, Virginia, just off Columbia Pike and Sleepy Hollow Road.  For more information about our neighborhood, including its history, a local map, photos, and other info, click on the Our Community button above.


This site is intended to be another way of keeping our residents up-to-date on what is happening in the Woods, to let other people know about our community, and to serve as a central point for access to the various community documents.
