Together we're stronger

Air Force Village West is located adjacent to March Field in Riverside, California.  We are a spectacular retirement community located on 221 acres of rolling hills with luxurious country club setting including golf, pool, spa, gym, trails and great meals.  Consider this:  "We who live here, firmly believe that the greatest retirement life is right here at Air Force Village West! " Just ask any of those retirees who are here, enjoying the wonderful year-round climate and crossing paths with many who have traveled the same courses in their careers.  Our community is built exclusively for military officers of ALL branches of the uniformed services, federal government officials (GS-7 and above) and their spouses or widows. 

AFVW is one of the most popular retirement communities on the west coast because of its spacious single family homes and apartments, services, amenities, and on-campus health care facilities.  We offer a lifestyle for both sides of your mind – the half that will always be young and carefree and the half that’s learned to make the right decisions about the future. Pet Friendly.

Knollwood opened its doors in 1962 following a groundbreaking ceremony by Mamie Eisenhower. This unique community was the result of the dedication of two special women, Mrs. Maxwell Taylor, the wife of then Chief of Staff of the Army, and Mrs. Hoy Davis. These ambitious ladies enlisted the help of thousands of Army wives around the world. Their goal was to provide affordable, secure retirement housing and health care services for Army widows who, at the time, received minimal benefits from the government. This unique community has been capably managed by the Army Distaff Foundation, a non-profit corporation for over 40 years. Knollwood offers a continuum of care to best fulfill the physical and emotional needs of each resident.

Knollwood is situated on 16 exquisite acres in Washington, DC. The estate is graced by azaleas, dogwoods and stately oaks on a knoll overlooking Rock Creek Park. Our residents thrive on the energy and exciting opportunities offered by living in the nation’s capital. The city’s amenities are only minutes away. An enjoyable day at the Smithsonian museum, an evening at the Kennedy Center, or just dining in Georgetown are just a few of the many treasures one can appreciate in the nation’s capital.

At Knollwood, male and female officers of all uniformed services and their female relatives have the opportunity to live with others who have experienced the unique life of the military. Old friendships are renewed and new friends are discovered. It is a community in which one instantly feels "at home."
