King’s Grant Community League’s mission is to maintain open space in the neighborhood for residents and visitors. This park is a tranquil spot on Watergate Lane looking north over Wolfsnare Creek. There’s a sturdy bench where you can sit to look, listen, and think. There’s an access to the water suitable for canoes and kayaks at high tide. Boat trailers and motor boats are not allowed.
King’s Grant Community League will host its annual Independence Day parade and picnic beginning at 11am on Tuesday, July 4th. The event is easy to enjoy… just show up and have fun.
KGCL really wants your participation in whatever transportation mode suits your interest: bikes, strollers, golf carts, wagons, lawn mowers, vintage vehicles, decorated vehicles, tractors, fire trucks, motorcycles, or just walk. Tell your neighbors. Assemble in Blue Ridge Court across from Witt Park at 10:45am.
KGCL will give each child 12 years old or younger a large patriotic pinwheel for participating. We will also award prizes in our bicycle decorating contest.
City Councilman Jim Wood will headline the program for our general meeting of members on Thursday, May 18 at 7:30 PM. Councilman Wood lives in King’s Grant and represents the Lynnhaven District on the City Council. He has served since first elected in 2002. He has deep roots in our neighborhood – graduating from Princess Anne High School and later serving as a Virginia Beach Police Officer. The many roles he serves in city government include leadership in transportation initiatives, flood prevention, and technology. Councilman Wood is an annual guest at our KGCL meetings. He will provide remarks about major topics that are being tackled by the city government, and he will take questions from members. Mark your calendar and plan to attend. Our meeting begins at 7:30pm at King’s Grant Elementary School.
