(KAKAAKO) - There are hundreds of properties in Hawaii that could be 
contaminated from oil, lead or pesticides but increasingly, developers 
are being drawn to these sites, known as brownfields.

In Kakaako, kids are having a ball at the Children's Discovery Center.

In the nearly 40-thousand foot facility, kids can let their imaginations 
run wild, as parents let their kids go wild. "Its a place where children 
and parents can learn and grow together thru the most important way that 
children learn through play," said the Children's Discovery Center 
President, Loretta Yajima.

But the colorful place has a darker history.
