There are 14 regular Geocaches and 2 puzzle caches in Willow Metropark. Click HERE for a Bookmark Table. In addition, 11 new caches will be launched the day of the picnic. There will be a drawing for "First to Find Head Starts" for these new caches. There will be 4 Kids' Caches nearby the shelter for kids to hunt for (Accompanied by a parent or guardian)
It is a good idea to print the cache pages for the two puzzle caches and bring along.
Downloads of the 11 picnic caches and the 16 Willow Metropark caches will be available for many models of GPS receivers. Bring your USB to GPS cable..
