Geocache Description:

Trussville Civitan Park.

The first Cache in the Grand ol' State of Alabama, and only the 294th cache ever listed on

It was originally hidden by WJ ( (visit link) ) has been maintained over the years by Bubbacache, TheAlabamaRambler, and now by Wheresdib and the Dibcrew.

The cache is located just OUTSIDE THE FENCE around the Trussville Civitan Park near the foundation remains of the early-1900s Jefferson County Prison Work Camp.

UPDATE 7/24/13 the Civitan Park is closed for construction but the cache is still accessible, it is NOT behind the fence. Due to several ammo can thefts, the cache container is currently a long tube painted green, similar to this one (but not camo anymore): (visit link)

Park at the Parking coordinates at Masonic Park on Park Place. There is a trail to the cache just beyond the public works but on city property between Masonic and Civitan Parks. You WILL more than likely get barked at, but the dogs are usually in their fences and are tail waggers. As of 9/16 there is a downed tree you will make your way around. Stay in front of the public works and continue until you reach the back side of residential fences. Once you're past the tree continue along the fence line until you reach the coordinates.
