One activity that is sure to interest children through to seniors is Parks' 100th anniversary Geocaching challenge.
Geocaching External Site. is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. Participants seek to locate outdoor hidden containers, called geocaches, and then share their experiences online. There will be one-hundred geocaches hidden throughout City parks. Twenty-five geocaches will be released each month from May until August and there are many prizes to be won for participating.
If you don't have a GPS unit, don't worry. GPS units will be available in May to be signed out through The Calgary Public Library External Site., and there are GPS apps for smart phones that can be used as well.
Keep checking the web site for more details. We will have a how-to video on operating GPS units and links to more information including where and how to download GPS apps on our site soon.
