Chesapeake City Park Chesapeake
Where are we going today?
If you are stuck for where to go on your family day out, why not enjoy that old fashioned park fun? If you head to Chesapeake City Park, it's so much more than just open space to play!
Chesapeake City Park is a great escape into nature within the vibrant city of Chesapeake, Virginia. Here, there is a whopping 90 acres to explore! 60 of those acres are open space, filled with grass to run around, as well as fun activities for all.
The remaining 30 acres of beautiful reforested pine trees, where you can play hide and seek, spot wildlife, and just get among nature!
The open space has great adventures to be had. There are dog parks if you have those furry family members with you, and picnic shelters are great spots to enjoy those family packed lunches that you can enjoy under the sun!
The Fun Forest Playground is the ultimate children's playground for those active kids too! Open from 9:30am, there are three-way underground phones, tunnel slides to explore, a shaky bridge to conquer, and lots of challenges for those older kids too!
Many of the attractions within the playground are accessible too, with slides, paved paths, swings and benches all there to accommodate!
Those active kids will love the skate park, found at Chesapeake City Park. There is a spine ramp, three-quarter pipe and hip ramp. There is even a street area with smaller ramps, as well as boxed platforms. Who is ready to show off those new tricks!?
With walking trails, outdoor fitness areas, and basketball/volleyball courts, we told you Chesapeake it so much more than a park!

This park has alot! Nice open area to play, basketball courts, dog park, sand volleyball, kids play area, skate park and even horse shoe area.
You can't take your dog into the fenced in kids play area so had to leave the dog in the car.

It is great overall nestled in the middle of the small Greenbrier area of Chesapeake, not bad overall. Saturated with kids. Depending on where you go, basketball courts have teenagers, other areas have families.

One of the worst dog parks I've ever been too.
