Geocache Description:


Please recall, to claim a smiley, you must physically sign the log. 

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. It is not designed to take you to a magical place with a breath taking view. It's a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it, too. 

The Science Centre (OSC) stop is one of the new locations on the (STILL under construction) Line 5 Eglinton. It will be an underground station as part of the light rail transit (LRT) plan. It is located in the Flemingdon Park neighbourhood at the intersection of Don Mills Road and Eglinton Ave. It's scheduled to open in 2022 (fingers crossed).

During the planning stages for Line 5 Eglinton, the station was given the working name "Don Mills". On November 23, 2015, a report to the TTC Board recommended giving a unique name to each station in the subway system (including Line 5 Eglinton). Thus, it was given its current name to both be more descriptive of the nearby Ontario Science Centre (in the same vein as Museum station), and to avoid confusion with the pre-existing Don Mills station.

On April 10, 2019, the Ontario Government announced that Science Centre station would be the northern terminus for the proposed Ontario Line. 

The cache is small and can hold some TBs and the like. Please use stealth when retrieving.
