Geocache Description:

The Water Gardens

With the happening of EXPO98 in Lisbon, the last Great Exposition of the 20th century, in which the main theme were the Oceans, a new set of gardens and recreation places rised in the east part of the city now called «Parque das Nações» (Nation's Park), in which the Water Gardens are inserted.


The Water Gardens are divided into several distinct zones, which are lined up in a West-East direction and extend for about 400 meters. The sequence in which they're organized allows the visitor to be in contact with several components of a natural hydrological basin. 
In the first area it is possible to find the water course, following next the evocation of current and a cascate. And let's not forget the evaporation for a full understanding of the water cycle. Let's highlight also, the Hydraulic Garden, where several pedagogical games can be found, and finally the Wave Garden where the surface and movement of the sea water is replicated.

In this description page you can find a document with more information about the Water Gardens.


  • The Nation's Park is very visited by turists, so this area may be a little crowded, mainly on the weekends.
  • The best time to search for this cache is on weekdays. However if you choose a weekend to find it you should go early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
  • If you see there are lots of people passing by you should consult the cheat as soon as possible, so that you won't be noticed as looking for something and don't draw all the attentions to you.
  • Last but not least, I suggest that when you find the cache you walk away from that place and open it somewhere else, where you can discreetly appreciate it, so that the place where it's hidden won't be found by curious people. Take the same care when hiding it again.
