Passport to the East Bay Regional Parks
Adventures in the East Bay Regional Parks!
The Passport to the East Bay Regional Parks is designed to be a fun geocaching adventure for the entire family. The Passport is designed to show off our wonderful East Bay parks. There is one special geocache hidden in each of the parks. (A few parks, however, are environmentally-sensitive, and of course, there are no geocaches in those parks.)
Did you know that the East Bay Regional Parks is the largest urban park system in the entire United States? It's true! Here is a link to the entire set of East Bay Regional Parks.
Here's how the Passport Challenge works:
- Find the special geocache in each of the Parks properties. Look for the title, "Passport to the Parks..."
- Stamp your passport book with the stamp inside the geocache
- When your passport is filled out, you get a unique, special gift! (Just send message to Bassocantor.)
How do I get a Passport?
You can find a passport booklet at many of the passport caches. Or download one here. Then, take the passport with you when you go geocaching. Be sure to stamp the passport using the stamp provided in the passport cache container.
Make New Friends!
You will discover that there are a lot of geocachers in the East Bay. There are many Facebook groups as well.
As you search for geocaches in the East Bay Parks, please obey all the park regulations. Let's help keep the parks in great shape!
