THE LETTERBOX STORY

As we entered Peace Park near the stone park sign, we started looking for a place to hide a new geocache. We headed northwest along the sidewalk, and noticed the Peace Pole - appropriately placed in Peace Park! Not seeing any place to hide a cache, we continued on our way. 2001 edit— The Peace Pole has been relocated. So just continue on the sidewalk.

We then encountered the circular flower garden. We walked around the garden, but didn't find any spot we wanted to place a geocache.

We continued along the original sidewalk and came to a bench. We have found a lot of geocaches on benches, this must be a great place! Then we remembered our last cache in this park was on this bench. So we continued on, coming upon a pile of rocks. We have found many caches in piles of rocks, but, again, we have already hidden a cache among the rocks.

So we continued on the sidewalk, turning northeast around the corner. We passed the manhole on the right and investigated the utility pole, both types of places we have found caches before. Neither seemed just right.

But just a few feet later - we found a spot that we think will work. Enjoy hunting for the cache here! It shouldn't be too difficult, but please leave the stamp and ink pad in the geocache and place the container back as inconspicuous as possible!
