The Mantua community not only offers great Fairfax County schools (Woodson HS pyramid), but also a monthly newsletter, annual picnic and parade, winter and newcomers parties, neighborhood watch, and many other clubs and organizations. We have block captains throughout Mantua who collect dues for the Mantua Citizens’ Association, and distribute the Mantua Directory that is printed every 2 years. The Swim and Tennis committee organize social tennis events and other parties at the courts and club house during the warmer months.
Endless trails and parks within the neighborhood and the large wooded lots are also features that attract so many people to Mantua. The Accotink trail can be accessed through a few places in the neighborhood and Fairfax County has done extensive work to lengthen this trail and to ensure it is as safe as possible. This trail can be used for exercising, walking with pets on leases, bird watching, biking, and just a place to sit serenely on a bench and admire nature.
