Geocaching in Preservation Parks

Geocaching, also called letterboxing, is a fun hobby that melds the use of technology with enjoying the outdoors. Preservation Parks does allow geocaches to be placed in the parks, as long as Park District guidelines are followed.

Geocaches are placed close to the trails or within public areas, to minimize the impact on wildlife habitat and other sensitive areas.

Geocache owners must fill out and submit an application, before a geocache is placed. Click on the links for rules and guidelines for geocache owners and seekers, and for the permit application form.
