Geocache Description:

[Fi:] Mikrokokoinen peruskätkö urheilullisessa ympäristössä.
[Eng:] Micro-sized traditional cache in a sporty environment.

[Fi:] Oulun kaupunki on investoinut moniin erilaisiin liikuntakohteisiin. Yksi uusimmista on Hovinsuon urheilupuisto. Paikan erikoisuus on 4000 m² laajuinen skatepark, joka on rullalautailijoiden lisäksi myös BMX- ja dirt-pyöräilijöiden suosima. Alueen muita liikuntaurheilulajeja ovat kesäaikana jalkapallo, juoksu, pesäpallo ja rullalautailu sekä talviaikana jääkiekko, hiihto, kaukalopallo ja luistelu. Alueelta löytyy skateparkin lisäksi juoksu- ja pituushyppysuora sekä nurmikenttä ja keinonurmikenttä. Lisäksi aluetta kiertää 870 metrin pituinen kuntorata.
Lisää tietoa alueesta, kts. (visit link)

Kätkö sijaitsee urheilupuiston vähemmän vilkkaalla alueella, mutta riippuen ajankohdasta ja alueen tapahtumista voit joutua odottamaan etsimiseen ja loggaukseen sopivaa ajankohtaa.

Tällaiselle kätköpaikalle on luonnollisestikin sopivinta saapua jalan tai pyöräillen, jos kuitenkin joudut käyttämään autoa, löytyy pysäköintialue Hintan seurakuntatalon pohjoispuolelta.
