Dorey Park and Recreation Center
Available for rent, Dorey Recreation Center is an ideal facility for various size gatherings, celebrations, meetings, or retreats. Dorey Recreation Center is located within beautiful Dorey Park. The park includes a large pond with walking trail, meandering walkways through the woods, a playground, and open space as well as a gazebo and picnic shelters. Dorey Park also has an off-leash dog park, 1 acre in size, with 5 foot enclosed fence with two areas – one for small dogs and the other for larger dogs. A variety of classes and events are offered for both children and adults throughout the year.
Park Note: Dorey Disc Golf Course is Open!
Looking for a new sport to play? Test your skills at our 18 hole disc golf course! This game is similar to traditional golf, but uses a flying “frisbee-like” disc. One point is counted whenever the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to get the lowest score. For more information or to schedule a tournament or outing, call Richard Huddleston at 501-5127.
Horse Ring & Trails
Dorey Park features approximately five miles of trails designed for horseback riding. A horse ring is available for public use during the week. Horse shows are held by a variety of organizations. Organizations wishing to use the facility for shows may call Richard Huddleston at 501-5127 to make reservations.
VDGIF Urban Trout Fishing Program
In November 2006, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ Urban Trout Program returned to six lakes in Virginia, including Dorey Park. The waters will receive trout stockings three times; once in November, once in late December or early January, and once in late February. This is not as frequent as in the past, but there will be a two to three fold increase in the number of trout per stocking. Anglers are reminded that a trout license is required in addition to a fishing license between November 1 and April 30. Juveniles under age 16 do not need a license. For more information, call the Fisheries Division at (540) 899-4169.
Open daily from dawn to dusk.
