Harnessing the energy of our potential, we have carefully-crafted an experience for surfers, visitors, and long-time residents. Atlantic Park is a year-round district that is home to a state-of-the-art live entertainment and events venue, creative office space, urban-style residences, and a curated mix of unique shopping and dining – a destination infused with authentic Virginia Beach style. As the birthplace of East Coast surfing, Atlantic Park is anchored by the only human-made wave park in the world this close to the actual ocean.



Surf Year

There are other surf parks in the world, but none like Atlantic Park. Centrally located in an urban environment adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, Atlantic Park is supplied by the world’s leading surf technology, Wavegarden, and is enjoyed by first time surfers, elite competitors, and spectators.

The Dome

An alluring indoor-outdoor experience awaits fans of music and other performances at what was once the site of the world-famous Dome. Planned for ultimate flexibility, this venue will host civic, entertainment, and community  functions, continuing the tradition of unforgettable moments here in Virginia Beach.



The public plaza outside the venue transforms into a welcoming community park on non-event days. Arts fairs, markets, free performances, and more are planned for this new outdoor gathering spot.
