This cache is a drive up and park cache. It's easily accessible although the last foot or two are not wheel chair accessible. It's not quite micro but is pretty small and won't hold much more than tiny items and the log.
In 1855, Samuel S. Bayliss, owner of the Missouri River Ferryboat system and a dedicated civic leader, initiated the city's park system with a gift to Council Bluffs of 2.15 acres in the heart of the young town. Bayliss had purchased a total of 200 acres from Henry Miller, a Mormon leader who held Squatters Rights. The parcel was a grassy expanse dotted with many young trees. The area soon became known as the public square and was appropriately named Bayliss Park. Since 1853, Bayliss Park has been the centerpiece of Council Bluffs. Host to concerts, festivals, picnics, family reunions, weddings and many other public and private gatherings, the park has been the setting for hundreds of thousands of special memories over the years. The park has recently been renovated with a new fountain, memorial plaza and art work. Be sure to enjoy a walk through and around the entire park.
