How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
2nd of a 3 cache series in Rosa Hartman Park. Complete all 3 and learn the coordinates for a BONUS 4th cache. An easy on-off from 95.
The first stage of this multi is probably the most challenging of all of the Rosa series. It is a micro.
Second stage of this is a smallish pelican box and has room for a few coins, travel bugs, log book etc. Given that the first phase involves a micro and this is a 2 stage cache, completing the second phase will result in your receiving 3 of the missing 5 numbers for the Bonus Cache.
Please keep trades small and don't forget to note down the two numbers so you can go for the bonus cache filled with fun trade items!!
Beware of ticks, muggles, poison ivy and other fun distractions...
Regarding the BONUS:
Inside the second stage of this you will find three numbers - keep a record, and refer to the bonus cache page.
This series is intended to be performed in the numbered order.
Accuracy was 20ft WAAS Enabled.
Rosa Hartman Park borders Laddins Rock Sanctuary in Greenwich.
1956 -- the park land was deeded to the city of Stamford by Jesse Hartman, an executive with the First Stanford Corporation. The park is named for his wife.
1980s -- the city decided to close the park. The park morphed into an illegal dumping ground and enclave for homeless people.
1998 -- the city put the park on the bidder's list after declaring the park underutilized.
The Stamford Golf Centre decided to privatize the site. They planned a sports center with restaurant on the site. Thankfully, Greenwich fought the plan (much of this park is wetland). I can't seem to find any more on what has happened, but the park is still there, it is open and has a nice couple of trails in it.
I figured that while we wait for the legal folk to figure this thing out it would make a great location for a series of caches. Enjoy!
