Marshview Park Master Plan

Marshview Park is home to 100 acres of wooded property on Lake Rudee in the Oceanfront area. The site is generally located between the neighborhoods of Lands End Condominiums, Salt Marsh Point, Seatack, and Shadowlawn and is open daily from dawn to dusk. In 2020/21 we completed construction on Phase I of the Marshview Master Plan which included Dog Parks, Parking Lots, Asphalt Trails, Playgrounds and more. The property offers unique cultural, recreational and environmental benefits and experiences to the city and its residents.

Bike Trails at Marshview ParkNew Mountain Bike Trail System at Marshview Park

We've partnered with Eastern Virginia Mountain Biking Association (EVMA) to develop the first-ever formal mountain biking trail system in Virginia Beach at Marshview Park. The project will enhance 4-5 miles of multi-use soft trails featuring varying lengths and skill levels along with trailhead maps, wayfinding signage, and mile markers to ensure safety for all visitors.

Parks & Recreation presented an updated plan for the next phase of Marshview Park during an open house at Seatack Recreation Center on August 20, 2015. The ​plan is based on the Marshview Master Plan that was developed in 2012 and includes dog parks, paved trails, open field play area, p​layground, picnic shelters, parking areas and a restroom building site. The permanent restroom facility will be constructed as future funding allows.
