We Value Your Feedback

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation seeks input on Marshview Park via Virtual Town Hall.

Tuesday, September 01, 2015

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation is seeking public feedback on the design plan for the next phase of improvements to Marshview Park via the City’s Virtual Town Hall page. The plan was presented to more than two dozen citizens at an open house session at Seatack Recreation Center on Thursday, August 20, however, the department wants to provide the opportunity for those who couldn’t attend to provide feedback as well. Those wishing to view the plan and share their thoughts may do so until September 30. 

The design is based on the Marshview Master Plan concept that was developed in 2012 and includes dog parks, paved trails, open field play area, playground, picnic shelters, parking areas and a potential restroom building. In addition, play nodes, a new feature for our park system, will be introduced at this location. These are a series of smaller play areas along the trails that are intended to support a variety of nature-based play, exploration and education. Design is expected to be complete in early 2016, with construction of the park to follow.

The hope is that together we can create a vibrant, active, outdoor space that reflects the community’s values. The updated plan has also been posted at VBgov.com/Marshview.
