Triangle Real Estate Information

Bordered by Quantico Marine Corps Base to the south and the town of Dumfries to the north, the 5,500-person town of Triangle acts mainly as a supporting community for the military installation. However, this relationship does not strip the town of its individuality and uniqueness. In fact, while Triangle’s long history has been developed in tandem with the surrounding military community, there is a special tight-knit feel to Triangle that makes it so popular.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is one of Triangle’s many attractions and is due to the town’s proximity to Quantico. Fuller Heights Park is Triangle’s own community park and features a number of family-friendly events as well as acts as a gathering place for residents. Because Triangle is primarily a residential area, most locals must travel to neighboring areas to run errands and shop. Woodbridge, about ten minutes north of Triangle, has a number of great shopping areas, including Potomac Mills Mall, the largest outlet mall in the nation. Additionally, a highly respected hospital and a variety of municipal parks await Triangle’s residents. It’s not uncommon for Triangle’s youth to participate in youth leagues in Woodbridge.

Triangle’s students are served by a variety of schools. The public system offers two elementary schools, a middle school, and high school in town. However, there is also an unusually high number of private institutions within the community. Many of the private schools are for grades K through 12.

A number of parks and recreational areas are shared with close neighbor Quantico. The Medal of Honor Golf Course, Locus Shade Park, Forest Greens Golf Club, and massive Prince William Forest Park serve both communities. Besides typical walking and hiking trails, campsites, and field space for sports like baseball, soccer, and football, the parks also have a number of community buildings and gathering pavilions. Some of the smaller municipal parks host a number of farmer’s markets, art fairs, and car shows throughout the year.
