Mount Trashmore, Virginia Beach’s Family Oriented Park!

Mount Trashmore Park in Virginia Beach
Mount Trashmore Park in Virginia Beach

Mount Trashmore is a uniquely named park in North Central Virginia Beach. Families from all over Coastal Virginia come here to relax or exercise! If you’re new to the area, don’t be alarmed. You won’t be wading through trash while you are here. Mount Trashmore is some wonderful example of environmental engineering! The 60 foot high attraction was created using soil and trash, which is obviously the root of the moniker.

On this day, I went there to walk around. I accomplished plenty of that! Mount Trashmore Park is on 165 acres! You can burn off a couple of extra calories walking up and down the “Mountain”. Or if flatland is more your style, you can do laps around Lake Trashmore. The Lake Trail, as it is called, is a 1.5 mile trek. The Perimeter Trail goes around most of the park and is 2.2 miles. People often walk, jog, run, bike, skateboard, scoot and hover board around the trails. They are flat, so strollers are an option. Along the trails are outdoor fitness stations! Dogs are welcome!

The main mountain, again is 60 ft high, and 800 ft long. The sides are a huge temptation for kids to roll down! On any nice day, you can see children running up and down

The park has several playgrounds for kids. The big one, Kids Cove,  is just north of the mountain. There are extra nice bathrooms for you to powder your nose! If you get tired of all that walking, there is plenty of seating for parents to get a good view of the kids. There are covered picnic areas for family meals. The playground has the nice soft ground that makes falling children a lot more safe! It’s better on your feet than Dr Scholls!

Mt Trashmore Skate Park

For those of you with slightly older kids, there is a skate park north of Kids Cove, closer to Lake Windsor and Encore Hill. Bikes, scooters, skateboards and inline skaters are encouraged to enjoy this attraction. Participants will be expected to obtain a park pass ahead of time. Information on getting a pass can be found here. Expert riders may be excited to know about the 13.5 foot vert ramp here! Helmets are required to participate.

There are various extra large picnic shelters. There are areas for volleyball or horseshoes. There are vending machines and liberal amounts of restrooms. And seasonally, concession stands are available! For shelter reservations, please call 385-PARK.

All of this is easily accessible from nearby neighborhoods! I am a Realtor, so you know I need to mention it.

Curious About Why Those EXIT Agents Are All Smiling So Much? And Free Food!

Ever wonder why in the World all those EXIT agents keep trying to get you to come to EXIT? And why do they all have this big dumb grin on their face? Can they really be that happy? They keep saying that they have all this great training, and that their split is gret and there are no budget-busting desk fees. They keep saying that they have a retirement plan and death benefits. They say that the company feels like a family and that they have all this technology to help with my marketing and they have leads for me, and that the admin staff is the best around.

Maybe you’re thinking that no place can afford to be that good. There’s got to be a catch. There’s no way that EXIT is any better than where you’re at. Or is it? If all that was true, you’d want to know.

We are having a EXIT Career Seminar this Wednesday and Thursday so you can find out, confidentially, whether we are all full of it, or that we really have the company that reinvented real estate? We will show you how we are the fastest growing real estate company in the history of the universe, why we feel like a second family, how we have an excellent retirement plan, and that we do have tons of leads, a system to help you follow up with them, and how we can afford to give out single level residual income to you!

This is not a high pressure sales seminar. We just want to show you. Because we love it! We love it so much, FOOD is on us! Come get a meal, get some information and possibly get your business headed in the MOST AMAZING DIRECTION!

First, that makes the marketing of your listing much easier for all of us EXIT agents. Secondly, we will know that someone is right in front of your home. I will get a text message and an email from the system the second someone is still looking at your home from the street. I can call them back and see if they want to see it while they are still a warm lead! I get to them at the point they have questions about your home for sale! Buyers will be happy to get instant access to more information about the property!

Our systems are proven to get you more buyers. As I have said many times, more buyers allows you to pick the offer for your house that is right for you. you might need the perfect terms and conditions, or you might just need the most $money$ you can get for your home and sell it in less time!
