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 main mountain, Mount Trashmore, now 60 feet in height and 800 feet long, 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, where you can enjoy a beautiful garden that 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 license. Fishers must adhere to all State regulations regarding creel and size limits. No boats, swimming or wading is allowed in the lakes.
Mount Trashmore Park is Sister Park to Haginodai Park in Japan.
