The Varsity Ridge community association offers a number of programs to residents. These include a walking group, a parents group, a Block Parents chapter and playgroups. The community also hosts special events, such as a summer barbeque, and an annual pathway cleanup. Although the community association does not currently have a community hall, plans are underway to establish one within the next few years. The community association also seeks to monitor community development, advocate for resident’s concerns and minimize the problems of graffiti, vandalism and speeding.
