Berkeley Lake has a very active homeowners association that is responsible for, among other things, maintaining the private lake around which the city is located. Many activities for members, including kids' night at the beach movies, fishing opportunities, etc. Being around 800 households, it's very quiet and downright bucolic, with its dense canopy of trees and flowering shrubs; it's like living in a park.
I have been in this area for over 7 years and I absolutely love it, my children have the same friends from elementary/middle school. Great place to raise home grown Christian families with excellent schools
