More information about the park can be found at:


I have been to this location many times. There are several physical and virtual caches on the way to this location. There are also several benchmarks of different types located here as well.


You can easily spend a full day here if you want to see all there is to see. I will leave it up to you to choose how to discover the park. The park is surrounded by water on its eastern and southern sides that give wonderful views. There are also spacious grass fields with trees for a family picnic if one was inclined to do so.


To claim this cache you will be required to enter a password. The information for the password can be located at the given coordinates.


Log Password information: While standing at the given coordinates with your back to the fort and looking across the water (no special equipment required) you will see the name of a company on a structure painted in blue. Please take note of the top word (six letters). Now turn around and look to the right of the large cannon. There are several cannon balls stacked there. How many? The log password will consist of six letters (UPPER CASE) and two numbers: LLLLLLNN where L=letter and N=number.
