Princess Anne Commons Gateway Park

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Princess Anne Commons Gateway Park is a renovation of the former Princess Anne Park site located at the corner of Princess Anne and Dam Neck.
​This park serves as gateway to the Princess Anne Commons corridor. The park is home to the Light Garden sculpture by internationally-known artist Dale Eldred, which was originally located at the former Virginia Beach Pavilion. The sculpture consists of sun-refraction glass panels arranged in a clustered fashion to resemble a grove of trees. Blue lighting elements produce a cloud-like feel for night illumination. The work was acquired in 1983 and was one of the first pieces of art funded by the Percent for Art program.
Meadow management practices have been implemented at this park, which appear as grassy, native vegetation instead of meticulously manicured lawns. By employing these natural buffers in the park setting, the park fosters important environmental and cost-saving benefits.
