The center features a multimedia exhibit depicting the history of the former garbage dump, and nearby is a new ecological lake, walking trails and a 500-seat amphitheater.
After the inauguration ceremony, the Sharon sons – and Omri's daughter Aya – planted two trees specially brought to the park from their late father's Sycamore Ranch.
