Summer Treasure Hunt in Merseyside Parks and Green Spaces

Merseyside Sports Partnership has teamed up with the Mersey Forest to launch a new Geocaching project, starting in Liverpool and St Helens. Geocaching is a great way to enjoy being outside in the Mersey Forest discovering somewhere new, getting fitter and enjoying the thrill of the hunt.

Geocaching is a bit like orienteering or Pokemon Go, in that you use GPS coordinates to find ‘caches’ that have been hidden within public parks. The first lot of caches have been placed around:

  • Calderstones Park, Liverpool
  • Colliers Moss, St Helens
  • Croxteth Hall Park, Liverpool
  • Everton Park, Liverpool

Taking part is simple – all you need is a mobile phone and an internet connection. You’ll then be able to navigate your way to a cache location, and use the clues provided to find the cache. Set yourself a challenge to see if you can find all 20 caches in the summer holidays.
