"You belong" in Greater First Colony, so join your neighbors in supporting our community, participating in our many activities, and enjoying our beautiful amenities!
GFCACA is owned and supported by its members who are residents of First Colony, First Colony Estates, Heritage Landing, Shellbank, Shellbank Woods, and Chestnut Hill.
Unique: Greater First Colony is unique in the Williamsburg area in being a non-gated community with a marina on the James River, an interior lake, a competition-sized swimming pool, Division I swim team, lighted tennis courts, a fully equipped playground, and a basebell field.
Access: As an association member, you and your family have automatic access to the park, lake, tennis courts, baseball diamond, the beach and marina. You also receive free admission to several community-sponsored events. Additional charges are incurred for the pool, boat launching, storage and docking.
Value: GFCACA dues are significantly less than Association dues in other communities with similar amenities. Financial prudence together with lots of volunteer support give you tremendous bang for your buck.
Upkeep and Improvements: The Association maintains and beautifies our entrances each season. The park is cleaned, planted and mulched twice a year. Playground equipment is checked, repaired, and/or replaced as needed. Last year, the pool received needed mechanical upgrades, plumbing repairs and new chairs. The marina is scheduled to be dredged later this year, and the bulkhead was recently replaced to assure the continued safety of our boating, river swimming and fishing members. We have built a beautiful Clubhouse which is available for resident and non-resident functions.
Security: The Association places strong emphasis on protecting the safety and security of our members. CURRENT membership stickers must be displayed on vehicles to use the park or marina. Please report any unauthorized or threatening activity immediately to our Neighborhood Watch coordinator, Bob Kane, at 564-0099
