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.

In all cases, geocache owners must fill out an application and meet with a staff member (usually the park manager), before a geocache is placed.

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