Dillingham Square: 
Shopping Along Old Bridge Road

Dillingham Square is just one of several shopping centers located along Old Bridge Road, in Lake Ridge - a subdivision of Woodbridge, VA.

Did you know the shopping center now has its very own website detailing promotions and events? 

The full face lift is coming along well although I still personally do not see the need to remove well established trees and shrubbery in order to replace it with more...

For those of us who have shopped here regularly or occasionaly since the Dillingham Square shopping center was first built, there was certainly never an issue of it not being "visible enough" from the main road.  Or so they say.

Sandwiched between Smoketown Road and Old Bridge Road, the shopping center now occupies a good portion of what used to be a small airfield, complete with a few hangars and a short runway - about 2200 feet long.

It was perfect for the occasional Piper Cub or single engine charter. The kids loved to watch the small planes take off and barely gain sufficient altitude to clear what is now the main entrance to Dillingham Square.

Not only did the airstrip have a rather unusual approach, over the heavily wooded area that became Lake Ridge Park, it also required a steep climb to clear the hill at the end the runway.  Seems like such a long time ago!

In the late 70's, there was virtually nothing in the way of residential. shopping or commercial properties beyond Woodbridge High School, except the airport and the two lane "Davis Ford Road" to Manassas.

As with other shopping centers, many stores have come and gone since it opened. However, if you live in the Lake Ridge community, this shopping center is extremely convenient.

Formerly called Bloom, the Food Lion grocery store is the anchor store for this neighborhood retail center. Wondering what they're offering in the weekly circular
