Friday, September 04, 2020

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – After hosting two design workshops and gathering feedback through online surveys and emails, Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation, in partnership with HRSD, is unveiling the final design of the new Woodstock Skate Park. The 30,000 square-foot park was designed by the creative minds at Team Pain who will begin construction on September 14 with a tentative opening in summer 2021.

The park will showcase a mix of transitional and street elements including premium features such as:

  • Snake run and two-level bowl with waterfall, five corners, and two hips
  • Quarter pipe with extension
  • Ledge runs, stair sets, wall rides, snake run, banks, hips, rails, and other custom ledges
  • Warm-up area
  • Shaded viewing spots

A full description of the park and renderings of the design can be found on the project website.

"Public input helped shape the snake run based on the flow and speed desires of local park users," said Tim Payne, founder of Team Pain Skate Parks. "Virginia Beach is home to beginner, intermediate, and professional level skateboarders and bike riders who are passionate about their sport. The community's input was crucial in the development of this skate park and we are grateful to be involved in this project."

The skate park replacement is part of the Woodstock Park Improvement Project, a partnership between Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation and HRSD. The project is bringing exciting changes to the heavily utilized community park, including many upgraded amenities and a 5.2-million-gallon wet weather offline storage tank that will be housed below the brand-new skate park facility. The project is scheduled to be completed in summer of 2021, weather and construction permitting.
