Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Geocache boxes come in all different shapes and sizes and will be in a camouflaged container in a safe but non-intrusive place. When you find our cache, please do not take it with you. Write your name and date in the log. In a larger cache, if you are comfortable, you may take something but then that means you leave something to swap! Come prepared with a pencil or pen.
Bedford Parks & Recreation currently has geocaches at our local parks: Ellenwood, Greencroft, Taft, Interstate, Talbot and Automile Park.
