How Geocaching Works

The cache is amidst the trees on the wooded hill that overlooks the Bell's Close Park.
When the Midland Mainline railways was constructed, GNR needed to build through a public area known as "The Great Moor."
As compensation to the population of Luton, the developer - John Crawley - bought some land and donated it to the townspeople. This became "The People's Park."
It has had something of a renaissance over the past couple of years, including the construction of a modern playpark, and 'trim trail' around the perimeter.

Despite the improvements - and perhaps due its proximity to the popular Wardown Park - it's a very quiet park, and even fewer people head up the hill to enjoy the impressive view of Luton that can be seen at the summit.
Parking is free at the small car-park off Havelock Road - the roads directly nearby have recently changed to 'permit holders only' Monday to Friday which is a shame, but we tend to go up the hill to one of the small side roads during the week, where there are no limitations.
So.. to the cache. It's in an aluminium flask, in a fleecy camouflage jacket. We hid it a little way off the path - as you're ascending the hill on the right hand side of the footpath, there are some shallow steps; turn right toward the young trees, just before the path splits.
Hope you can find it - it's our first Geocache, so any hints to make it better would be much appreciated.
