Discovery Park

The policy: Geocaches may be placed in Discovery Park with the explicit permission of Discovery personnel, arranged through Winos_Seattle, the geocaching liaison. Contact Winos_Seattle to have your cache reviewed and approved BEFORE you submit it to Groundspeak for publication.

All caches placed in Discovery park must be placed on a main trail (shown on park map) and must be no farther than 10′ off the trail

If a geocache is submitted that’s in Seattle’s Discovery Park:

  • It should have a Reviewer Note stating that it’s been reviewed and has permission from Winos_Seattle and the Discovery contact (with a specific name and title). Ideally, the approval email is pasted into the note.
  • The cache page should have a permission statement at bottom: “This cache placement was approved by Discovery Park.” The reviewer may email Winos_Seattle if desired to verify permissions.
  • If no permission is provided with the cache submission, the reviewer will deny publication and refer the cacher to Winos_Seattle to obtain the necessary approval and then resubmit the cache.
