This cache could take a little looking, since only the container cover is visible to protect it from muggles. Just follow the paths, look for the best access spot, and enjoy the streams, walking bridges, and pond.

Note this cache is near the highway, but do not attempt to get to it from the highway! Approach it from the trail head on Parkland Drive. There should be ample parking on the side of the street.

The pond is called Little Belchers Pond, and it is part of Belchers Marsh Park. Johnathan Belcher (1710-1776) was a Supreme Court Justice of Nova Scotia and was later the first Lieutenant Governor. He helped with the establishment and interpretation of the law in Nova Scotia, including the court system, based on the laws of Britain. Belchers Marsh Park was officially named by HRM Chebucto Community Council in January, 2003 after a presentation by the Friends of Belchers Marsh. Thanks to Dragonflys for this information.

At the time of hiding it had a S-video cable, geocaching stickers, teamwork pencil, laser pointer, bag closer, and a little something in the log book for the FTF.

While you're here, you might want to check out my other cache in Belchers Marsh Park, A Ducky Vantage Point.
