Want to get kids interested in the environment? Try showing them this unusual example of recycling. A 165 acre park constructed by compacting a landfill's worth of junk, the mini-mountain is now an idyllic spot for walking, picnics, volleyball, and even skateboard stunts – its skate park has been visited by the likes of Tony Hawk. Take little ones to the Kids' Cove playground, or let them fly kites on the breezy top of the hill. And their Water Wise demonstration garden demonstrates eco-friendly “xeriscaping,” a resource-light way to grow plants.
