There’s a new city park coming to Virginia Beach, and city officials are hoping that residents will be part of its groundwork.

On Thursday, Feb. 8, residents can attend a meeting at Tallwood High School to contribute ideas and input to the planning of Woodbridge Park, to be located in the 5500 block of Lynnhaven Parkway.

The 90-minute meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. After a presentation, breakout groups will discuss what amenities they’d like to see implemented in the park’s design.

The development of the new park helps to ensure that all city residents are within a 10-minute walk of park space.
