Description

Once a landfill, over 60 feet high, 800 feet long and 165 acres. Home to Kids Cove playground, skate ramps, and many special events. Fitness trail, water wise gardens and many more recreational amentities.
World-renowned Mount Trashmore Park encompasses 165 acres and is comprised of two man-made mountains, two lakes, two playgrounds, a skate park and vert ramp, and multi-use paths. The mountain was created by compacting layers of solid waste and clean soil. Recognized for its environmental feat, this former land fill features a water-wise garden that boasts xeriscaping which requires minimal water.

The park also features a smaller mountain, Encore Hill, and two lakes.
Lake Windsor (located along South Blvd.) is brackish water fed by Thalia Creek.
Lake Trashmore (located along Edwin Drive) is freshwater and hosts various species of fish.

Fishing is permitted from land only and requires a Virginia freshwater fishing license​. Fishermen must adhere to all State regulations regarding creel and size limits.

No boats, swimming or wading is allowed in the lakes.

The Amenities at Mount Trashmore are:
