This cache is located on blacktop and pea gravel paths in Kiwanis Park. However, the Google maps show the location of the park farther West than it actually is. The final cache is about 6' off the trail. The cache is available in winter, but snow may make it difficult to access.
The first idea for Kiwanis Park originated in 1957, when a Kiwanis committee was formed to investigate the feasibility of constructing an outdoor swimming pool for the city of New Holstein. The municipal swimming pool was opened in 1961. The park has continued to grow with the addition of playground equipment; picnic areas; baseball diamonds; tennis, basketball , and horseshoe courts; an octagon shelter building; two open shelters; and footbridges across Jordan Creek. In 1994, Langenfeld Pond was constructed with a handicap accessible fishing dock. Soccer fields, an ice skating basin, a disc golf course, and new playground equipment were added. Margaret Reineck, in 1997, gave the City of New Holstein a wooded area that fronts on Fur Farm Road, and is one mile south of the city. This park of virgin woods has a hiking path that runs from the woods through a nature area and into Kiwanis Park. It is an area where families can walk to view and appreciate nature. In 1999, a community center was constructed. A new Aquatic Center opened in the summer of 2009. This is a two part multi-cache. Waypoint 1 has the coordinates for the final. Waypoint 2 is a camoed peanut butter jar with a log, pencil, and some goodies for the kids. Please replace the cache as you found it.
