Geocache Description:

Rory O'Moore Park in Yonkers is "hidden away" off Roxbury Drive in the Hillcrest neighborhood.  It has a baseball/softball field as well as some woods (but no real trails as far as we can see).


What makes this park most interesting (besides that few outside of Yonkers know about it) are two things:

1) The water tower at this location (cache is not near it but it is walking distance away).

2) This is one of the highest locations in southern Westchester County (and thus the cache name) at over 300 feet above sea level.  There is no view unfortunately, however, except for the water tower and baseball field, it is amazing how such a small park gives you the feel of being "away from it all" as you cannot easily see any houses or signs that you are in a city. It certainly does not feel like you are a mere 3-4 blocks from the "hustle and bustle" of Central Park Ave.

Cache is a small container big enough for small trade items.  A WG$1 is the FTF prize. It is far enough from the ballfield to not be an issue during games but close enough to the parking lot that you need to be a bit stealthy.
