Sunset Over the Garbage Dump

Apr 8, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

Can you believe this beautiful sunset photo was taken at the local dump. That’s right, this park was once a landfill before the city laid grass over it and called it Dyer Park. Note this hill/garbage dump is only one of a few places in South Florida with this much elevation. Basically South Florida is flat and if you have never been to this part of Florida don’t expect to see and hills unless you go to the dump.
