Portland Parks & Recreation supports and encourages the sport of geocaching as an activity that promotes exploration of our varied landscapes.
PP&R’s public parks, natural areas, recreational facilities, gardens, and trails are intended to provide visitors with safe and enjoyable recreational opportunities. PP&R actively manages public properties and facilities for a range of uses - including both recreational and natural habitat values.
This policy establishes procedures to facilitate and manage geocaching on PP&R property to provide a balance of wise stewardship and recreational opportunity. This policy has been developed with the input of local geocachers as well as staff from Groundspeak (the headquarters of Geocaching.com).
