I went here out of curiosity.... and I'm glad I did. You can walk or run and get some great exercise from climbing the steep hill. There were Pavilions for picnics and playground areas if you have small children. It was clean and relaxing with plenty of parking & restrooms. There is a lack of shade in most areas so... More

My kids and I prefer the old playground but I'm sure for safety reason and for younger children it's more appropriate. Great area for Pokego. We do not go to the fair anymore, besides being over priced the teenagers ruin any fun with fights. Stop seeing fireworks there as well, overcrowded, can never find a parking spot and of course...

There are walking trails, a playground, and a big hill. It's a park. There's actually very little shade in most of it. It's really blah, but not awful or dangerous. Avoid it on Independence Day. You'll spend hours getting in an out to see 45 minutes of decent fireworks and be jostled, crowded, and stepped on and over at one... More

This park has playgrounds for the young. There is some lack of shade so on a really sunny day have sunscreen and beverages. Teens, tweens and adults will enjoy climving the mount. There is a lovely trail around the park that I've done with my daughter. If it's windy that is great for flying kites

The uneven ground makes it harder for those who are running, it's really like a mountain but they put some steps on them and a rail for those going up or going down, there's also this picnic area that is for free of use. playground for the kids and many more. the parking closes by 8pm or something so don't...

This is a sizable park, with a great walking trail around the lake. It's clean and well maintained , and also has multiple workout stations around the trail. On a windy day, you'll find a lot of people on the top of the "mountain" flying kites. Windy or not, it's a good workout walking to the top of Mount Trashmore.... More

This Virginia Beach landmark is amazing. It's great got flying kites, working out, playing and larping. Don't know what larding is? Well go to Mt. Trashmore and find out what it is. I've never actually done it but the gaggle of people dressed in Renaissance clothing always seem to be enjoying themselves. The playgrounds are amazing. Bathrooms are decent, but... More

We participated in the first of a series of Runs today in the 5K, this morning beginning at 8 o'clock. Although there were 439 runners in the 5K, followed by a host of runners in the 1 mile race which followed--this was so well run and organized, there wasn't a glitch whatsoever. From the moment you parked your car, there... More

I love going to this recreation area, as you can walk and run around a manmade mountain and lake. There is a play area for the children and I think skateboard park too. Lots of picnic pavilions that you can reserve for groups or just hav e family picnic. It was clean and relaxing with plenty of parking too. Great... More
