Landfill Playground

One of our favorite parks has grassy knolls, a sandy beach, driftwood sculptures, and the whole thing sits on a formal landfill.  It’s true.  For decades, the Albany Bulb was the site of the systematic filling of the shallow bay and surrounding wetlands.  Now nature has reclaimed and made wild again what man has carelessly destroyed.  But once in a while when the wind turns, we can still catch a sour whiff of garbage.  A reminder that not every mistake we make can be fully rectified.
