Note: This is not a park and grab. Do not park on First Road West - you won't be able to get to the cache. Park in the lot for the dog park, and follow the main trail south. Then turn left on the first short "spur trail". This will lead you to the cache. The container is a micro, but I plan to replace it with something larger.
Jack is our first dog, a golden doodle puppy. He has lots of energy. Today we took Jack to Hamilton's newest leash-free dog park. I always wondered about these dog park, how they work and what keeps the dogs from mauling each other. But out visit went well and more than 20 dogs ran and played with tails wagging, enjoying the large four-acre fenced-in area. We'll be back.
The Heritage Green Community Trust Dog Park opened to the public in June 2015. There are no geocaches in this park (there are a few in the neighbouring park). And so here it is, the first cache and it's an OCNA-only hide. I will continue to place OCNA caches in this park as we visit again and again.
