Geocache Description:



Oosterpark was built in 1891, situated just outside the city center on the east side of Amsterdam, is the perfect picnic spot. There are plenty of large grass areas and ponds to enjoy, and because it lies just outside the center, you may find fewer tourists and more locals from the surrounding ethnically diverse neighborhoods.

Oosterpark was voted one of the 10 best places to picnic in the Netherlands.

Jericho Lake is a 20.9 acre reclaimed rock quarry with a maximum depth of 26.2 feet. It is a steep-sided lake with clear water. The lake is owned and maintained by the Fox Valley Park District (FVPD) as a community park. The shoreline is mowed in several areas to allow access for shore fishing. There is a boat ramp for small boats with electric motors only. Carry-in water craft are a better option. A picnic area and Frisbee golf course are located in the adjacent park. There are several mowed areas to provide excellent shore fishing.

Jericho Lake Park was voted one of the 10 best places to picnic in Aurora.
