  • 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!
