The Ghent Neighborhood

Ghent is a fantastic area! There is always something happening here! On the South end,the Hague is a picturesque body of water with an arching land mass with high end homes lining the shore. The Hague also provides an unobstructed, beautiful view of the Chrysler Museum. Monticello Ave runs the length of the eastern side. The North end of the neighborhood has some interesting boundaries.  23rd street is listed on Google as the last street included in Ghent. There’s Jeff Robertson Park, Weyanoke Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary, Lambert’s Creek and the Mallory Country Club. Access to Interstate 264 is going to be straight down Brambleton Ave. Locals will know to turn right onto Waterside Drive which also heads right out to I264. Trying to head North to Interstate 64 or 564? Your best option is to head up Granby to one of the many entrances. Trying to get to Naval Station Norfolk? Head right on up Hampton Boulevard.

The Weyanoke Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 1979 when Audubon members noticed a Purple Gallinule on the land. This was such a super rare visitor to our area, the Norfolk and Southern Railroad gave the land to the Cape Henry Audubon Society. Many birds frequent the park because it’s neighbor, Lamberts Creek is a wonderful place for them to feed. Ghent is park-rich with Jeff Robertson Park, Westover Memorial Park, Graydon Park, Redgate Playground, Yellow Fever Park, Greenway Court Park, Medical Center Park, EVMS Greenspace,  Raleigh Avenue Playground, Riverside Park, Beechwood Park, Botetourt Gardens, Ghent Dog Park, Van Wyck Mews, and Olney Road Park. The residence of Ghent are serious about their parks!

Enjoy large grocery stores, Harris Teeter, Farm Fresh and Fresh Market.  Colley avenue has the Naro Cinema. They play a mix of independent films and oldies.
