It would require weed pulling, trimming and mulching. You can sign up with your office, bowling club or fellow neighbors. It would be an area to call your own and for the whole county to enjoy.

Woodville Park is growing everyday with the help of the generous citizens of Gloucester County. Woodville Park is approximately 100 acres in size and is located in Hayes off of Bray’s Point Road. The park started with a gift to Gloucester County of 100 acres by the Lanciano Family. This new nature park contains both wetlands and woodlands, athletic fields and reflective gardens, walking paths and hiking trails. The site plan is available online to see what else is in store for the future of the park.
The next major focus for Woodville Park will be to install a state of the art all inclusive playground. Fundraising is under way. Check out our Park Partners page for upcoming fundraising events.
The construction of the park has been made possible by the generosity of individuals and businesses who have donated money and time and over $800,000 in grant funds. The park won the Best New Park Award in 2013 from the Virginia Recreation and Park Society. Volunteers are always needed. Upcoming work will include field preparation, garden maintenance, trail clearing and more plantings. If you would like to help please email Parks and Recreation. Memorial bricks and benches are also available for purchase to remember your loved ones.
