​The Virginia Beach City Council will hold a two-day goal-setting retreat on Feb. 5 and 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the new Brock Environmental Center at Pleasure House Point, 3663 Marlin Bay Drive. The meeting is open to the public. 

The Brock Center is the new home of the Hampton Roads office of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. It is one of the greenest buildings in the world -- among the first in the nation to embrace energy and water independence.

Driving east toward the bridge, take Shore Drive and turn right onto Marlin Bay Drive. Continue to the end. If driving west, cross the bridge and turn left onto Marlin Bay Drive.


PARKING: Public parking is along Marlin Bay Drive. Park parallel against the Pleasure House Point Natural Area, near the intersection with Mystic Cove Drive and Chesterfield Avenue. Walk the path at the head of Marlin Bay (you will see white light poles along the path) to Brock Environmental Center – a five-minute walk.
