Geocache Description:

The cache name is also it's location.  This park has no facilities or equipment of any kind which makes it a unique place.  Our family walks by this park sometimes, it strikes me as a quiet, little garden spot that I suspect few know about.  When I visited to scout possible cache locations we ran into 3 urban deer.


There is no public parking nearby but there is residential on-street parking all around and the streets are generally quiet.  The uphill clearing on Gould Ave has a game trail that heads out of the back and goes along the hill.  You can use this approach although the walk is a little longer.  Parking on Morningside Ave may be more difficult and you'll have a little less of a walk but that's just less fun in my book (this is all pretty short distance).  The cache is on the higher ground of the park, you're looking for a small, camo'd bottle that is hidden out of site.

FTF prize is a 2013 quarter featuring the Great Basin on the back; looks to be in good condition for a circulated quarter.  I don't have much else in the cache yet but I will likely place trackables in the future. There is a small translucent cylinder in the cache that is to help keep it dry; please do not mistake it for a collectable of some sort and take it with you.  BYOP

I hope you enjoy your visit, this is my first geocache; feedback is welcome.
