Geocache Description:

The co-ordinates given are for a small Christchurch park. You need to search the park for the answers to the questions given in order to find the final cache location (which is within the same park).

The original cache containerwas put together by Sallies and hidden at the Davidsons Bush Locomotive cache site on the West Coast. As it turns out, another cache had been placed at the same location (by Iona) just days before, so Sallies asked that I search out and remove their cache for them.
It seemed fair to return it to them in the form of a new cache location in their home town. The original cache has been muggled, so you are now looking for a micro cache

Notebook & Pencil

Please note that the gates to the car park in the back of this park are locked at night. If you think you'll cut it fine (time wise) you may want to consider parking in the service station grounds next door or on the street outside the park. One caching team has already had the unfortunate experiance of having their vehicle locked in at night.

You do not need to leave the paths in the gardens in order to complete this cache.
