Virginia Beach’s Development of Atlantic Park and Nearby Experiential Stays

Virginia Beach’s Development of Atlantic Park and Nearby Experiential Stays

Virginia Beach is setting a new standard for surf enthusiasts and tourists alike with the development of Atlantic Park, a $335 million surf park and entertainment venue. Led by a public-private partnership that includes Venture Realty Group, Bishard Development, W.M. Jordan Company, and Priority Title/H2O Investments, with support from Grammy Award-winner Pharrell Williams, this project is transforming the Oceanfront area into a year-round destination​​.

At the heart of Atlantic Park is the Wavegarden Cove, the first of its kind in the United States. This 2.67-acre surf park will feature an advanced wave-making technology capable of generating 1,000 waves per hour, accommodating both novice and experienced surfers. The Cove promises an authentic ‘beach club’ environment with sandy shores and cabanas, creating a perfect blend of high-energy sport and relaxed beach lounging​​.

Atlantic Park Isn’t Just About Surfing

Atlantic Park is a lifestyle hub featuring a lot more than just surfing. The other amenities include:

  • “The Dome” is a 70,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor entertainment venue. This music venue will host many new artists coming to the area.
  • On non-event days, the public plaza outside ‘The Dome’ transforms into a lively community park.
  • Indulge in new-to-market restaurants.
  • Watch the latest blockbusters at the Movie Theater. 
  • Explore the experiential retail.
  • Soak up the sun on the sandy beach and cabanas.

This mix of amenities enhances the visitor experience and bolsters the local economy by making Virginia Beach a vibrant community hub all year round​​.
