I loved that they reclaimed what was once just a dirty dump and turned it into a world-class park with hiking trails, playgrounds, skating area, ball fields..

I've loved Mt. Trashmore since I was a kid. We would take field trips and roll down the huge hill...and guess what my own kids did as soon as we hit the top? This was a nice trip to a beautiful park that's perfect for jogging, walking, or just getting that "being outdoors" feeling - even within view of downtown Va Beach. Clean facilities and plenty of wide trails
Very very peaceful. Sweet little pockets of activity in different places. Intimate birthday parties, kite flying, dog walkers, love birds holding hands, kids riding bikes, bookworms enjoying a shaded bench. Clean public restrooms throughout. Overall enjoyable place to be!
