The Hidden Creek Neighborhood, offers a trendy lifestyle, convenience, and comfort. Close to the restaurants, shopping and entertainment at RIO Washingtonian Center, Kentlands and Downtown Crown, you don’t have to go out of your way to enjoy everything the area has to offer. My favorite place to visit during hot summer days is definitely 7-11 convenient store around the corner.
Nothing like a blue raspberry Slushy or Big Gulp to cool you off.
Where is the ‘Hidden Creek’?
I don’t know, but you will certainly enjoy exploring the walking trail and trees with benches along the way.. If you have a dog, there is Dog Waste station so make sure to clean up after or else there will be $100 fine.
