Our Experience: Five Stars

When you’re sick of the mall, and don’t really want to go out to eat (again) heres a place to grab some fresh air and get in some exercise for free–Mount Trashmore!

It comprises two man-made mountains, two lakes, and two playgrounds. The scenic view makes it a great spot for picnics, walks, and even flying a kite on one of the “mountains”.

The park has many amenities including:

  • Outdoor fitness stations
  • Three Large Picnic Shelters with Charcoal Grills
  • Two Medium Picnic Shelters with Charcoal Grills
  • Six Mini Picnic Shelters with Charcoal Grills
  • Two Volleyball Courts
  • Horseshoe Pits
  • Playgrounds
  • Skate Park
  • Shared-Use Path
  • Vending Machines
  • Public Restrooms
  • Concessions (seasonal)
  • Outdoor Fitness Stations​

The path that wraps around the lake is wide enough to bring your kids in the wagon, a double jogging stroller, or even your pup.

Biking is allowed, but because the path is concentrated with mostly runners and walkers it could be challenging to bike at a reasonable speed.

Let us know what are your favorite parks to visit!
