Geocache Description:

Larchmont's first! A hidden gem of a park on Long Island Sound.


Manor Park

"Larchmont Lark" is located in about as beautiful a neighborhood as you'll see. Multi-million dollar homes are everywhere you look, the landscaping is flawless, the cars flashy, and the residents, well...loaded!

Fortunately there's a public park the rest of us can enjoy. Manor Park, despite its curious absence from Mapquest, is located at the end of Larchmont Avenue. The park is an absolute gem offering panoramic views of Long Island Sound across to Long Island, two gazebos for seaside relaxation, paved paths, plenty of rocks for climbing on, and a whole roll (or memory card)'s worth of photo ops. Just don't bring a picnic (they're quite strict about that). Dogs are permitted as long as they're leashed and cleaned up after. Hours are dawn to dusk so no night caching, please! Be aware that there is no parking lot; please park on one of the side streets where legal.

My thanks to "The Pickles" of www.letterboxing.org for graciously allowing me to share their letterbox. Interestingly enough, I found the letterbox by chance while scouting out cache locations. It was such an ideal spot that I had to share it with you, dear cachers.

Enjoy the park, and my town! (Don't be too intimidated; I live in an apartment building near 95!) Watch out for muggles, and please replace as found--if this cache/letterbox goes MIA, two owners mourn!

Have fun and cache on!
