Welcome to a city where neighbors not only know each others’ names, they enjoy each others’ company. Welcome to a place where kids can safely play outside past dark. Welcome to a world where neighborhood Bar-B-Q’s, community yard sales, Easter egg hunts & holiday parties are the norm. Welcome to Burke!

It’s simple to see why Burke was ranked #31 on Money Magazine’s “Best Places to Live” list for 2008. It’s a great place to raise a family. With numerous lakes, ponds, parks, trails, shopping centers and even an 18-hole golf course located throughout the city, there’s always something to do.

An already close knit community is brought even closer through the abundance of activities available for the city’s children and young adults. Ask almost any woman who’s lived in Burke in the last 30 years where she took dance classes and she’s sure to answer, Buffa’s Dance Studio. Buffa’s has become an icon in Burke. It’s grown tremendously throughout the years but they’ve always kept that “hometown” feel. Most of the instructors even live within miles of the studio.

The Braddock Road Youth Club has served as another great commodity for Burke over the years. The club offers: baseball, basketball, cheerleading, football, rugby, soccer, softball and volleyball for the youth throughout the community. If that’s not enough to keep the kids busy, Burke also offers; multiple area swim teams, karate & gymnastics classes, girl & boy scout troops to join, and music lessons to attend.

Another treasure of the city is the Burke Nursery. The nursery hosts an annual Fall Festival that atracks visitors from all over the county. With their extensive pumpkin maze, giant pumpkin playground, hay rides, face painting, and seasonal snacks, who wouldn’t look forward to the fall!

Burke Lake Park is a year round excursion for anyone who’s lucky enough to live close by. The 888 acre park features: a 218 acre lake with fishing, boating & rowboat rentals, camp grounds, a miniature train, a carousel, outdoor beach volleyball courts, picnic grounds with grills, open fields, a frisbee golf course, horse shoe pits, an ice cream parlor, 3 playgrounds, numerous trails, an amphitheater, a miniature golf course and an 18-hole par 3 golf course complete with a clubhouse, snack bar and driving range.

Burke is truly a place anyone would love to call home.
