Mount Trashmore is the perfect park to take your kids to play, fly a kite, walk your dog, have a run or walk, or just relax. It was once a landfill, but is a beautiful park in Virginia Beach. There are bathroom facilities and plenty of parking. There is the Kid's Cove area for younger children to play, a lake... More

Just as the title suggests, this was once a trash dump. Now it is the place to hand out with famliy and friend. Want some high intensity exercise? Climb or run to the top of the hill. A more sedate experience in mind? Walk the dog around the lake. You will see bikers, joggers, walkers and skateboarders. Great kids part... More

I live in Virginia Beach and Mount Trashmore Park is a great place to jog, take your kids biking, racing up the mountain, or play on the new renovated playground (my kids miss the old playground, because you could play hide n seek). There is also a skateboard park, picnic areas, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, as well as vending machines,... More

So I read a review which a person rated the park terrible because they learned afterward that mount Trashmore park used to be a mountain of trash. Not sure what they thought it would be or if the folks who named it were just trying to call it Trashmore to throw people off...anyway, it used to be a trash dump... More

This park was once a landfill. That's why it's named Mount Trashmore. This place is beautiful. The view from the top is great. We go there every 4th of July to watch the fireworks. It's a nice place to fly kites also.

The view from the top is spectacular. There is a new playground for kids, it has a trail as well for jogging, exercising if you will. Very Scenic!

In the evening we climbed to the top of Mt Trashmore, the view of the City Center was great! The playground was nice too. It is a great place to go for a walk. The kids couldn't believe it was once a landfill.

For a former landfill, this place is remarkable. I have been here numerous times over the years and recommend it highly. Nice place on a sunny day for a walk, fly a kite, or for the kids to play in the playgrounds
