Looking for a unique and fun way to spend time outdoors at our parks? Geocaching (geo-cashing) is an environmentally friendly outdoor recreational activity.  This outdoor treasure hunting game involves searching for hidden objects using clues and GPS (global positioning system) coordinates. There are 9 geocaches strategically placed within and near the Oregon Park District’s parks and facilities.  Enjoy learning and taking in the beauty of these destinations while on your real life treasure hunt for geocaches!  You will need a membership, a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so you can navigate to a cache, a pen or pencil to sign the cache log, and you may want to bring an exchangeable treasure!  To start your adventure, retrieve a free Oregon Park District Geocaching Log Book & Guide online or at Nash Recreation Center today!



This drop in service is available for all visitors to Nash to enjoy our facility and stay active while ensuring the safety of your child. Call Nash Recreation Center for more details.
