I am glad that this landfill was transformed into an area that can be enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts as well as wildlife. There are many trails, including one that goes to a pond, that runners, hikers and dog owners can use. It is too bad,...More

It's so green here, and the grasshoppers leap out of the grass all around you. Climb the hill to the very top and turn, and you'll see all of the peninsula laid out for your viewing pleasure. I love it here.

The Glendridge Quarry Naturalisation site was an old landfill. Surprisingly it doesn't smell. There are a few great gazebos there. Even a nice little lake with a deck on it. The terrain is flat. If you head to the northernmost border of the park, the...More
