Geocache Description:

Large multi-activity park. You are looking for a small pill bottle - camouflaged of course.
This is a temporary while landscaping continues.
During large events extreme stealth may be required. At worst you may have to abort and come back another day.

This cache replaces GC1Q093 which was abondoned. I tried to adopt it but got no response from the owner before it was archived.

The Community Park was originally built as a development project during the late 1960's and early 1970's.

This park’s abundance of open space and easy access are among its greatest assets. The 270-acre site is located in the far northern section of the City of Oshkosh between County Road Y and Snell Road, and County Road A and Highway 76. 

Facilities include four shelters with playground equipment and support amenities which can be reserved, ball diamonds (two lighted and one unlighted), a 18 field soccer complex, an archery range, rugby football fields, disc golf course, three picnic shelters, which can be reserved and three fishing lakes. One of the lakes has small boueys used by RC boat racing hobbiests.

Winnebago County Community Park is also one of the few parks within Oshkosh City limits where there is a public dog park. 9 acres of fenced area in the northeast portion of the park provides a secure environment for dog owners to exercise their pets off-leash. 

Numerous special events and picnics are held in the park each year.

Since the park is so big, it hosts a number of other caches making it an ideal location to log several caches in close proximity much like walking trails. Leave the non-cachers at a playground or picnic area and go log some caches and see some activities. Depending on the season, you may see RC boats racing, folks playing frisbee golf, a soccer game, white and blue heron, geese...

Happy caching!

Congrats to isjustus4, Rattlebox and Firebirds for co-FTF.
