Community Recreation-Dam Neck
The Dam Neck Liberty Program & Community Recreation Office partners with other N9 and installation departments to share resources, enhance programming, and offer installation-wide special events. Events and programming include (but not limited to) day trips to various leisure and recreational destinations to encourage community discovery, creative expression programs (such as art and entertainment activities), along with facilitated healthy leisure skill development such as classes, workshops, and clinics; all while fostering social interaction among peers and the community.
The Dam Neck Liberty & Community Recreation Office also offers various types of in-house programming such as Texas Hold’Em and Ping Pong Tournaments, themed watch-parties for major sporting events such as the NFL and NBA games, holiday events and gatherings for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Independence Day, and much more! The Dam Neck Liberty Center & Community Recreation Office works in conjunction with other MWR facilities and programs to add little to no-cost entertainment to patrons and service members on the Dam Neck Annex base.
The majority of our patronage is Sailors and Marines in their first phases of professional training, largely 18 to 25-year-olds, with no transportation for any off-duty activities. The Liberty & Community Recreation Office provides off-base shuttles weekly to local area vendors such as Red Mill Commons Shopping Center, Lynnhaven Mall, the NAS Oceana NEX and Commissary, and more.
