Learn about the Woodstock Park Improvement Project at a Community Open House April 22

New features include a new skate park, playground equipment, family restroom and more.

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation and Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) are hosting an open house on Monday, April 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Kempsville Recreation Center (rooms 3 & 4) located at 800 Monmouth Lane. Staff from both organizations will be available to answer questions and share information about the Woodstock Park Improvement Project, planned features and public impacts during construction.
HRSD is constructing a 5.2 million gallon offline storage tank in Woodstock Park. Parks & Recreation has partnered with HRSD so that a new, cutting-edge skate park will be built on top of the tank. An underground storage tank in this area will reduce the risk of sanitary sewer overflows during heavy rain events by temporarily holding conventional wastewater combined with storm water that migrates into wastewater pipelines until elevated conditions in the pipeline subside.

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation has partnered with HRSD to complete additional improvements to the park including new pavilions, playground equipment, a family restroom, and improved parking. This $32 million groundbreaking program will deliver a multi-use facility that serves both Virginia Beach's community needs and the region's infrastructure demands. By combining these facilities, HRSD is able to fulfill its regulatory commitments and VBPR is able to improve another recreational facility sooner for residents and community members. The partnership also allows Parks & Recreation to carry out significant park renovations simultaneously and share the costs with HRSD, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars.
