Woodstock Park Improvement Project

​​​​​​​​​​​Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation (VBPR) has entered into an strategic, mutually beneficial partnership with HRSD that is going to bring some exciting changes to Woodstock Park! 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. Over the next two years, HRSD and Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation will renovate Woodstock Park, including the pavilions, parking, park restroom, and playground as well as building a cutting-edge skate facility for all skill levels on top of a 5.2 million gallon offline wet weather storage tank​. Building an underground tank in this area of Virginia Beach allows HRSD to safely hold excess wastewater and rain/groundwater in the system until elevated conditions in the sewer system subside. The partnership also allows VBPR to carry out significant park renovations simultaneously and share the costs with HRSD, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars.​​​ ​

Woodstock Park Improvement Project Timeline

There will be a number of opportunities for community feedback and engagement throughout the project. An upcoming public information open house is planned for April 22, 2019 at Kempsville Recreation Center. The wheeled sports community will also play an integral part in shaping the skate facility and will have the opportunity to weigh in on options during design presentations planned for fall 2019.  The project consultant team has enlisted Team Pain, a skate park specialist to help design the skate park.

During the park closure, a temporary dog park will be located at Providence Park, 952 Reon Dr., Virginia Beach beginning in June 2019 for the duration of the construction project. Other nearby amenity alternatives include –
