Provide Feedback on Draft Concept Plans for Kempsville Community Recreation Center’s Replacement

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

(Virginia Beach, VA) Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation is developing plans to replace Kempsville Community Recreation Center, located at 800 Monmouth Lane in the heart of Kempsville. This recreation center opened in 1977, and is the City of Virginia Beach’s oldest -- and second most busy -- recreation center.  The public is invited to learn and provide feedback about the draft concept plans and timelines. You can participate by:

  • Visiting the City of Virginia Beach’s online citizen engagement tool, Virtual Town Hall (, between December 5, 2013 and January 3, 2014;
  • Or attending a public meeting at Kempsville Community Recreation Center from 6 pm until 8 pm, Thursday, December 12, 2013;
  • Or coming to the Saturday, December 14, 2013 public meeting, scheduled for 1 pm to 3 pm at Kempsville Community Recreation Center.

All three venues will allow the public to view a draft concept plan for the new recreation center review the expected timelines for the project, and provide input on proposed facility amenities and activities. All options are free and open to the public; comments and feedback are encouraged.
