VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A popular family park in Virginia Beach will close for two years to undergo extensive renovations.
The Woodstock Park Improvement Project will include several improvements, including a 5.2 million-gallon wet weather offline storage tank and a new skate park.
The underground storage tank is meant to reduce the risk of sewer overflows during heavy rain. A design session for the new skate park to allow for the public's input is planned for this fall.
Other improvements include new pavilions, playground equipment, a family restroom, and improved parking.
Woodstock Park should reopen by summer 2021, weather and construction permitting.

- Temporary dog park – Providence Park (952 Reon Dr., Virginia Beach)
- Tennis courts – Lark Downs Park at Kempsville Recreation Center (800 Monmouth Ln, Virginia Beach)
- Playgrounds – Woodstock Cove Park (5913 Woodhaven Ct., Virginia Beach) and Providence Park (952 Reon Dr., Virginia Beach)
