Salem Lakes Neighborhood Park closed due to construction work

Friday, December 19, 2014

​(Virginia Beach, VA) - Beginning Monday, December 22, 2014, Salem Lakes Neighborhood Park (located at 2080 Centennial Circle) will be closed due to a shoreline stabilization and dredging construction project. Construction also involves the removal of both an existing pedestrian pathway and culvert that separates two lakes to then create one continuous lake. Construction is anticipated for completion by summer 2015 at which time the park will reopen.

In serving the community, Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation manages 275 City park sites, almost 7,500 acres of parks and natural areas, six community recreation centers (with a seventh one under construction), and provides landscape management and maintenance for municipal buildings, public schools, park facilities, and designated roadways. The department is committed to providing the citizens of Virginia Beach access and opportunities to pursue healthy lifestyles.
