Geocaching Adventure Lab
Geocaching Adventure Lab enables anyone to explore, discover, and learn through interactive location-based games and scavenger hunts. Adventurers across the globe are beginning to create a new kind of interactive experience encouraging you to discover the world around you in a whole new way. Download the Adventure Lab app to explore the two Anderson Parks’ Adventures!
As you step outside using the Geocaching Adventure Lab app, the map will guide you to locations where you can unlock richly detailed stories, puzzles, and hidden adventures. Each Adventure has been created by someone just like you with the goal of sharing a special location, story, challenge, or educational experience with other like minded adventurers. It’s a great way to get outside and play with friends, family or even on your own.

Anderson Parks and Ranger Rick GeoTrails
Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game using your smartphone or GPS device. Geocaches can be found along the park district’s GeoTrail in eight of our parks! Navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Visit the park district’s geocache page (requires login and password) to let your adventure begin!
Come to Veterans Park to read Born to Stand Out by Nikki Rogers as you walk the trail!

- The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Mrs. Ferguson.
