“vision of happiness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

since being in Virginia while visiting my daughter, i fell in love with this place instantly! amazingly beautiful with ample trails and and places to even have little gatherings. there is a park for the children and this is a very dog friendly area. loved taking my daughters dog there and just hanging out,beautiful lake in the middle and a huge gigantic hill to climb. people there all time, very inviting place. wish that other states,cities everywhere would take this idea and turn some trash into good!

“Great time and a lot of activities!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a great afternoon. Our son loved the playground and climbing the "mountain" was a great time for him.

“Dump with class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Okay, they should have selected a better name, but this park shows what some vision, and funding can achieve for landfills. If you're visiting Virginia beach and need a break from the ocean, the park offers a great playground, waking trails and the only noticeable "hill" in Virginia Beach.
Great place to visit, surrounded by great retail

“Convenient Recreation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This park has a couple miles of paved walking trail, including exercise stations along the way, and the "mountain" provides a panoramic view of the surrounding area. For running, I prefer the unpaved trails out at First Landing Park, but Mt.Trashmore is more conveniently located and has better parking.

“Great place for many things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Mount Trashmore is a fantastic park formed from a landfill. It opened in 1979 after years of being filled with solid trash, layered with topsoil. Now it is an island of country in the middle of a city, a welcome sight to the many tourists going to the ocean front. It has walks, jogging trails, play gound, picnic sites, fishing, and the mountain to climb, either by stairs or up the slope. It is also home to some twenty geocaches, with many more close by. An excellent place to stop
