Geocache Description:


This is a small park on the shore of Lake Tarpon owned by the city of Tarpon Springs. It used to be called "Wayside Park" back when I was a kid. We used to swim at the white sandy beach here almost every day during the summers. That has all changed now, the city shut down the beach and boat ramp many years ago to let nature reclaim the shoreline.

All City Parks open at 7:30 AM and close at dusk

No micros here, you are looking for a decent sized lock-n-lock with
plenty of room for trade items. The cache is on the other side of the rail, near the waters edge, so use caution and be wary of any native critters that may be taking refuge around the container. If the areas has become overgrown, use a stick to poke around until you hit something solid. Have fun and enjoy this beautiful spot!
