Geocache Description:

Back in 1994 Florence Dolan, owner of the A-Boy electric and plumbing supply stores, wanted to enlarge the size of her Tigard store.  The city of Tigard wanted 10 percent of the 1 1/2-acre site as a condition for giving Dolan a building permit. The fight was on!  It went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Click the link "Related Web Page" above the coordinates at the top of this page.

The idea of this cache is to make you walk all of the paths of this park.  All of the waypoints are on the asphalt path.  Bring your dogs, but please keep them on a leash.  Bring your cameras.  There are signs posted not to feed the Nutria. I saw three.   You do not have to leave the path at anytime .
