This Cache is along a trail in Pelham bay park. Pelham Bay Park is the largest park system in NYC. IT is over 2,700 acres. It has nature trails, a soccer field, multiple baseball fiels, tennis courts, a large childrens park, basketball courts, a dog run as well as other sports related features. Orchard beach is part of this park.
Tucked away in this park is a White Oak tree that is believed to have been standing in the park for almost 400 years. There is also a animal cemetery which dates back almost 300 years. This is located at N40.51.003 W073.49.180. There are nearly a dozen still recognizable small headstones here. Take some time to explore the park and all it offers.
This is the first cache hidden by Cub Scout Pack 345. It is part of a project to teach our older Cub Scouts how to use GPS units and have fun doing it. It was also part of our efforts to teach them to care for the parks that they play in. The area in this park is in need of some CITO. Please help us out and CITO when looking for this cache.
Unfortunetly we had to relocate our Cache. It was muggled from its original location. After wathcing area for a few days we decided the foot traffic was too much for caching so we moved the cache off another trail still within Pelham Bay Park. one that is usually traveled by bikers and joggers only. It has been restocked with cub scout patches and such and a new log. Please replace cache exactly as found. please let me know if the camo'd container is damaged.
