 FAQ - Free Parks

Q: Why is Parks & Recreation eliminating the dog park and skate park fees?

A: One of the department's goals is to improve access to parks and programs for our residents. Eliminating these nominal fees is a great step in that direction. Improved customer service and increased efficiencies are other important reasons for the change.  There will be less of a burden on customers to complete a cumbersome process and conduct travel to off-site locations to complete transactions.

Q: What if my pass has expired and I want to use the dog/skate park before April 1?

A: As a courtesy to our existing customers, those whose dog park registration or skate park membership expires before April 1 will have their registration or membership extended at no additional charge.​

Q: What if I just recently purchased my pass?

A: You may be entitled to a prorated refund. Email fun@vbgov.com for information, or visit any community recreation center.

Q: If I have never visited a dog/skate park before and want to do so before April 1, how much will it cost me?

A: New customers who wish to use these facilities before April 1 will be charged a nominal prorated fee as follows -

DOG PARKS:

Purchase in February - $3, valid until March 31, 2019

Purchase in March - $2, valid until March 31, 2019

SKATE PARKS:

Purchase in February – Youth $3, Adult $6, valid until March 31, 2019

Purchase in March – Youth $2, Adult $4, valid until March 31, 2019

*Same fees apply to both residents and non-residents for both dog parks and skate parks.​

Q: Will the rules for using the dog/skate parks change once passes are no longer required? How will they be enforced?

A: All safety rules and customer usage expectations still apply including wearing helmets at the skate parks, etc. Dog park users must still have a current VB dog license and current rabies vaccination. New regulation signs will be posted at the dog parks and skate parks in late March. Park Staff will continue to keep the Dog Waste Stations stocked with bags and will monitor use as Park operations allow, however Park Staff will no longer be issuing or checking Dog Park Passes.  Any incidents or bites after April 1 should be reported to Police Animal Control at (757) 385-5000.  Per City Code, all dogs in Virginia Beach are required to be licensed and have current rabies vaccination.​
