Located just west of the Lesner Bridge and south of the Chesapeake Bay, Pleasure House Point Natural Area is 118 acres of water, tidal marsh, sandy shores and maritime forest. The shallow water estuarine environment of the property provides habitat for the iconic Chesapeake Bay blue crab and the Lynnhaven oyster. This high-profile property was once being considered for a large waterfront development, but with the help of the Trust for Public Land, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the City of Virginia Beach and the surrounding community, one of the largest undeveloped parcels of land on the Lynnhaven River has been preserved for generations to come. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this effort! View photos from the ribbon cutting ceremony.
