Uplands is a wonderful community centrally located in north Reston near amenities, parks, and shopping. The neighborhood primarily consists of single family homes built in the early 1970s, although some have seen major renovations or updates. The neighborhood has convenient access to facilities provided by the Uplands Recreation Area, including an outdoor pool, basketball court, and tennis courts. 

The neighborhood is ideally located near several large parks, including Lake Fairfax Park, which provides 476 acres of beautiful parkland. The 18-acre lake allows for fishing and kayaking, and the park offers a waterpark, trails, campgrounds, picnic areas, and playgrounds. Baron Cameron Park is great for pets, while Lake Anne is just a mile away, featuring a plaza with restaurants, shops, activities along the waterfront, and a farmer’s market. 

The neighborhood allows easy access to main roads, including Reston Parkway, the Dulles Toll Rd, I-66, and I-495.  Dulles International Airport is just 7 miles away, and the Wiehle-Reston East Silver Line metro is only 2.4 miles away. Reston Town Center, home to world-class dining, retail, and entertainment options, is just 2.7 miles away. The Pavilion at Reston Town Center hosts many events throughout the year and provides an inviting outdoor space to relax or view performances. 

Uplands is also a part of Fairfax County’s highly rated public school system. The neighborhood is in the pyramid of Forest Edge Elementary, Hughes Middle, and South Lakes High. Reston attracts residents from everywhere because it offers the best of both worlds. With proximity to the inner beltway and DC, as well as plenty of nature all around, Reston has it all!
