Caches in Portland City Parks in Northwest Posted November 2, 2011 Okay, the bloke at the Park Department sent me the following email today after I pointed him to this conversation: Hey Lee, I appreciate your sharing the link and the conversation that you've started within the geocaching community about caches in our Parks here in Portland. I'd like to ask that you not put any new geocaches in place at this time, until we are able to complete our policy development. There are currently plenty of opportunities for cachers to explore in our parks right now - and while they don't have permission, we know they are there, and they certainly provide everyone with ample opportunity to explore, until we can catch up. When we get further along, I may check back with you to help us get some review of our draft policy. Thanks, And my reply to him... I'll be happy to comply with that guideline myself. As you mentionedyou have a couple of active geocachers on your planning group, perhaps you could get them to enter that conversation online? so stay tuned, you might get your open line of communication here... If he really wants this to be adhered to, he should make a formal request to Groundspeak. I am sure that there are reviewers here reading this but just asking you is not going to stop others from continuing to place caches in the parks.
