Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Very tiny magnetic nano, bring your own pen and tweezers highly recommended. Enjoy a relaxing break at the nearby local fountain with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Midland Beach in Staten Island.

The cache is a magnetic, tiny nano; like really really small. I strongly encourage you to bring tweezers along with your own pen. There is high muggle traffic during the warm months so please use stealth. This cache is accessible at all hours. 

This trail of caches is intended to bring cachers to the lovely parks, multi-use path, boardwalk, beach and oceanfront here on Staten Island. These grounds are maintained through a partnership between the city Park's Department and the National Park Service which means no caches in the park area. All caches on this trail will be found outside the park area; most will require you to cross the street (Father Capadanno Blvd.)

This cache is located near Sea Turtle Circle in the Midland Beach section of the boardwalk. This is a decorative spray shower where you can cool down or wash off. The ground around the spray shower is designed to look like a sun and the beautiful statue in the middle is of a sea turtle with rocks underneath it.

Along this 2.5 mile boardwalk are multiple memorials honoring Staten Island war veterans and notable citizens. There are also playgrounds, baseball and soccer fields as well as shuffleboard and handball courts in the area. 

This free public beach offers clean, free, public swimming. Happy hunting and enjoy the beach and the Borough of Parks!
