Geocache Description:

You are looking for a two stage multi-cache in Bowline Point Park.

There are many parks in Rockland County that have Scenic Hudson River Views, so I have decided to place a series of caches to share these scenic places with other geocachers.

Bowline Point Park has an Olympic size pool with a diving well and wading area, two water slides, a newly re-designed toddler pool, a toddler playground, a handicap accessible playground, one refurbished tennis court, regulation size volleyball courts, paved walking paths and a fishing pier with a spectacular river view. It also has picnic tables and grills. The park is open to the public year round. During pool season (June-September), the pool is open to pass holders (residents) and their guests only. The pool is fenced off from the rest of the park, so you may still use other park facilities in the park if you do not have a pass to use the pool. The park is spread over 8 acres, and there are restrooms available, and during the summer a snack bar. Large parts of the park are handicapped accessible. Park is closed and gated at night, so please do not search for this cache at night.

You are looking for a two stage multi-cache. Both stages are located away from the main entrance to the pool, but there are playgrounds and picnic tables nearby, so stealth is a necessity.

The two stages are within sight of each other, so park in the lot and spend some time enjoying the park.

For stage one, you are looking for a micro containing only the coordinates for stage two. (The coordinates in stage one have been updated as stage 2 has been replaced and relocated a short distance from its original spot)

Stage two is a short walk away from stage one, near the water. For stage two, you are looking for an ammo can. The original cache was a lock-n-lock container, but it seems to have been buried under some dirt and rocks from some construction last fall. Hopefully the new container will be safe. Watch children near stage two, as there is a steep, rocky drop-off towards the water around the perimeter of the park.
