This is my favorite park!  The new and updated Kids Cove keeps the boys busy for hours.  The only thing is it is almost always crowded so if you have really little ones...keep a close eye on them.  The older ones are fast ...

Don't get fooled by the name "trash" and "more".  Impressive park in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. This is joggers, runners and walk...

This park is actually called Mt. TRASHmore!! But it is far from being trashy! It's actually a beautiful park and very impressive. The story I was told is that it use to be a landfill and they converted it into a rolling hilly park with a running/walking path, a lake, skate park, small skate halfpipe, and children's playground. I went on a Thursday late afternoon and was surprised at how crowded it was! Especially the children's playground! There were so many kids it was insane. I can see now how kids could easily be abducted because it's a madhouse in that area and I would find it hard to keep an eye out the whole time. The half pipe was pretty cool, I could spend all day watching people eat it on that thing...

If you're from out of town, yes, it's built on a giant mound of trash, but no, you'd never notice.  It's basically a public park with a mountain.  Lots of footpaths for walking or jogging, a skate park so kids don't have to practice on streets or buildings, and of course, Kid...

I've been coming to Mt. Trashmore Park since I was a little kid and I love it.  It's a great place for kids, families, and runners/joggers. Now that I'm a little older, I come here to do some jogging whenever I'm in the Virginia Beach area.  They have a great path that you can modify from the basic lake, the lake and the hill, the hill, going up the hill, etc.  Whichever way you take, it's an excellent place to work up a little sweat.   They also have great things to do on the hill, like fly a kite or have a little picnic on a picnic blanket!  It's the perfect setting to just enjoy your day and feel the air.   There are quite a few places to take children too, including the little playgrounds they have at th...

If I were a parent with fat kids, I would be taking them to Mount Trashmore every weekend.  Love this place! I'm not much of a runner, but I just ran here for 45 minutes and never got bored.  It's the perfect running spot for me because 1.)  there are designated trails, 2.) there's a lot of people, and 3.) there's great variety. If I want to go easy, I just run the around the park a few times on flat pavement.  If I want to step it up, I add stairs.  If I want to exercise so good that I almost throw up, I do intervals up and down the hills.   The only problem I have is that the stairs seem a little wide.  So if you have short legs like me, or just not very comfortable running up and down stairs for fear of f...

It may just be me, but I think it's insane that one of the major landmarks of this city is a huge mountain of garbage covered with grass.  I know, you are scratching your head or giggling thinking that I must surely be joking, but I assure you that I am not.  But alas, Mount Trashmore is a Virginia Beach city park and surprisingly a pretty nice one.  And popular too.  Every day tons of joggers, dog walkers, chatters and children playing fill the park located centrally in the city.  The huge mountain is great for exercise and fun, although they recently banned sledding down the slope (boo!) and the waterfront scenery almost makes you forget that you're sitting on a mountain of trash.  One man's trash is anoth...

Mount Trashmore Park may be neglected with dead grass and duck poop paved paths, but I'm obsessed. I feel that it's rare to see VB locals enjoying the outdoors, but this is one place that lures us out and about. This landfill turned park has something for absolutely everyone. The covered tables and benches are perfect for cooking out. I suggest getting some grub to grill, drinks, family, and friends and making an afternoon of it. Plus, the three, yes, three, playgrounds will keep the kids occupied all day. There are also paths around the lake and hills (plus a set of stairs that will leave your buns a' burnin) perfect for running as long as you're good at jumping over dog leashes and dodging child-shaped obs...
