This is a large park in Virginia Beach that is a favorite of many locals. It literally used to be a landfill that they have repurposed into a city park. Don't expect to be able to sled down the hill during any snowstorms though, due to liability reasons they guard it like Fort Knox to prevent you from doing so.... More

they'll love this. If you don't, just drive by it and you'll have experienced all you want just knowing it was a pile of trash that was covered and now people are playing on it. No smell, you can walk to the top and down if you're healthy. Great place to go for the fireworks IF you get there early... More

I have been to mount trashmore several times and I really like it. There is a lot to do as far as picnics, kite flying, running, riding bikes, and several other things. It is really big and family friendly. I recommend family's in the area to stop by.

There are exercise trails around the park, fun playgrounds, a skate park, picnic areas, a lake, and a hill perfect for flying kites. This is a great example of what can be done to a former landfill. The success of the design and planning of this park can be seen by the many people we saw using this place --... More

Clean park, nice for families to sit, picnic, let kids romp! Nicer than anticipated for a sit down in the open air getting away from traffic on busy Holland Road and Virginia Beach Town Center during a "rush hour." Good parking!

What a lovely place! It's wonderful to see such a use of space in a city like VA Beach. Nice walking paths and great for families to fly kites and enjoy the sunshine.

This is a beautiful park! We love long walks on the trails with our two dogs and two kids and Kid's Cove is wonderful!

Climbing Mount Trashmore might be a challenge for many but the reward of reaching the top is great. The view is fantastic!

So let me start by saying Mt. Trashmore became a second home to me during my husband's deployment and truly set me on a great path to better health. After his enlistment ended two years ago, we moved back to Texas but recently visited the area and went to the park. The add-ons are AMAZING!! The healthy stations with equipment... More
