It’s Not Too Cold to Cache
Thankfully we live in the south where, even though it’s chilly, at least we’re not digging out of 3 feet of snow. So just add an extra layer and you can still enjoy our local parks.
This fall, geocaching is heating up. We’ve had plenty of locals and visitors tracking the caches we’ve hidden in four local parks: Brittlebank Park, Hazel Parker Playground, Simonton Park and Wragg Square. Just use coordinates found online at Geocaching.com and your GPS system to track down a container of Parks Conservancy goodies.
With kids out of school for Christmas break, this is a great outdoor activity for the family. And if you have visitors in town, take them geocaching as a way to show off our city’s beautiful parks and green spaces.
