  • I love this place. It’s somehow so relaxing even if it’s pretty busy. People seem to be much nicer here, and they’re pretty considerate to each other as well. People really enjoy walking their dogs here so for someone like me who absolutely loves dogs but doesn’t have one, it’s really heartwarming. One lap around the lake is a mile, so it’s really easy to get a nice outdoor walk/run in.
  • We visited for the first time and will definitely be back! First we walked the trail the kids riding their scooters then we made it to the top of the hill to fly our kites( extreme fun). We even played at the play ground for about an hour. Loved that it was great safe fun. Lots of clean restrooms.
  • Great park! It had beautiful views atop the mountain. There were lakes,geese, ducks, and friendly people. We brought our dog and there was plenty of free parking. There was also two playgrounds for children. There were picnic tables and bags to dispose of pet waste. A great place for anyone. Free public bathrooms were available as well.
  • This use to be the city landfill, hence Mount Trashmore. They have a very large play area for the youngsters, which many of the local ice cream trucks frequent. They have a skate park across the lot, which requires a pass. They have several walking paths and fitness centers around the lake. Little doggie poop bags and trash cans are located along the walking path. You never really know what's going to be happening when you come out here. There always seems to be festivities for the family or a race of some kind. I have spent many days working out here. It is probably the best location for outdoor exercise if you live close by. It is also a nice place for light fishing, but they don't allow boats. I enjoyed many days fishing with my dad out here. We mainly caught carp and catfish. If you get out here later in the day, I recommend parking in the lot next to the YMCA since there are no gates on the parking lot. They do not play any games when they shut the park down at sunset. Someone will drive around with a bullhorn alerting you that they will be closing the gates.
  • Wow, has this placed changed since I was a kid! We were in Virginia Beach for a family reunion. I had been gone for over 20 years. Mount Trashmore has changed so much! The kids absolutely love the playground area which is packed with swings, slides, rope walls, platforms, and more! The spongy flooring in the play area makes it easy on the parents to stand for long periods and chase down their little ones. The public restrooms were clean and there was plenty of parking. Wish we had time to check out more of the park!
