Geocaching in Richmond, BC
If the thought of tracking down hidden treasures piques your kids’ interests, try geocaching – a family-friendly outdoor treasure hunting game that uses a smartphone or GPS device. Richmond has 30 hidden geocaches in parks, on trails and at community facilities throughout the city.
Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates to find the prize – a hidden geocache container with a secret word. Before starting the search, download a Geo-Quest passport or pick up a copy from the interpretive centre at the Richmond Nature Park, so that you can record the secret words in the passport.
All details about the City of Richmond’s Geo-Quest program, along with the downloadable passport, are available here.
