New Park, New Caches

With over 100,000 acres of parks, trails, and open space land all within a two-county area in the densely populated San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay Regional Park District has created a true oasis for hikers, bikers, equestrians, and of course, geocachers. Since 1934, the Park District has been acquiring and preserving publicly-accessible, recreational land for residents of and visitors to Alameda and Contra Costa counties in northern California. Keeping true to their mission, they just added another 654 acres to their holdings with the recently opened Dublin Hills Regional Park.

Two days ago, the Park District celebrated the opening of this new park/open space area with a dedication ceremony. Of course, all I cared about was how long until we had some new caches to hunt?

Turns out, we cachers didn't have to wait long. Thanks to geocacher, "misterscooter", we already have two brand-spanking new caches hidden in the newly opened park. And one of them has already been found. Thank you, misterscooter.

Cache On!
