 About the Project

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation (VBPR) has entered into a 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 Skate Park Design Workshop​

Upcoming meetings - Design concept review, Winter 2020, date and time to be determined. 
Recent meetings - Tuesday, November 19 | 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. | 2154 Landstown Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23456

A design workshop was held at the Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation Administration Building with our friends from Team Pain Skateparks to discuss options for the new skate park being built at Woodstock Park. The current plan allows for a warm-up area, a flow bowl, and an advanced area. This workshop was attended by over 110 individuals with an interest in skating and wheeled-sports. Feedback from the meeting and the online form is being compiled by Team Pain and will be used to create some design concepts that will be shared at another public meeting in winter 2020. 

The skate park replacement is part of the Woodstock Park Improvement Project (WPIP) being done in partnership with HRSD who is constructing a 5.2 million gallon wet weather storage tank below what will be the skate park.
