Concrete repairs to close down Woodstock Skate Park beginning June 23, 2014

Monday, June 16, 2014

(Virginia Beach, VA) - The skate park at Woodstock Park located at 5709 Providence Rd will close on Monday, June 23, 2014, due to major concrete repairs. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of the week (weather permitting), and the skate park will reopen on Monday, June 30.

 

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation has two other skate parks to visit in the meantime: Mount Trashmore Park (310 Edwin Drive), which includes a 24,000 square foot extensive street course flowing from an aboveground, seven-foot deep bowl as well as a competition-sized vert ramp that stands at a massive 13.5 feet tall and 40 feet wide; and Williams Farm Park (5269 Learning Circle) which has a 25,000 square foot, concrete skate park that features a tiered bowl, flow park and urban skate plaza. LED lighting allows access from 8 am to 9 pm daily for public skate. All skate parks are free and open to the public, but a free Skate Park Pass and helmet are required for entry.
