Read original and watch video...

The Jamaica Bay landfill is slowly being turned into a nature preserve with many family activities.

The park will feature fishing, a sail boating school, bicycle paths, an amphitheater area and ample parking for visitors.

The project is costing approximately $200 million. The New York City Department of Environmental Protection has transformed the landfills over the past 10 years in to a lush habitat covered with more than 30,000 shrubs and trees.
