Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation Launches New Recreation Center Premier Membership July 1

Drop-in child care also starting on July 11

Thursday, June 30, 2016

Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation will begin offering a new premier membership for its recreation centers beginning on July 1. The new membership option includes unlimited drop-in group fitness classes in addition to regular access to each facility’s incredible amenities such as the indoor pools, weight rooms, rock wall, and more. Also, coming July 11 is the highly anticipated addition of drop-in child care for parents who would like to get their workout in while their children are able to play in a fun and safe environment!

“The premier membership was created to offer a simple plan for our members who frequently partake in group fitness classes,” said Tracey Gauthier, Programming and Operations Manager for Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation. “Rather than purchasing single or multiple class punch cards, they can pay the one annual fee (or monthly option) and enjoy all of the drop-in group fitness classes they want at any of our centers,” she added.

Pricing for premier members is $285 annually for a Virginia Beach Resident ($504 for non-residents). Monthly payment options are also available. For more information on pricing, membership options, and drop-in child care, visit
