As our thank you to those who have served, Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation invites members of the military and their families to enjoy the following special offers:
- Thank You Thursdays | Free admission to any Virginia Beach Recreation Center every Thursday in May
- Free Fishin' Fridays | Free admission to the Little Island Fishing Pier every Friday in May (Present military ID on May 23 and May 30 to receive free parking at Little Island Park. Parking fees are not charged prior to May 23.)
- Free kayak/canoe rentals for up to two hours at Munden Point Park during the entire month of May (subject to equipment availability; first come, first served)
A military ID (active duty, retiree, or dependent) or DD-214 must be shown in order to receive the offer. Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to honor our service members.
