Cache 3: Wood Branch Fence  
This cache can be found near the creek and an amazing wood branch fence.  Please observe the signs and do NOT pass beyond into the nature area. You won't need to cross the gate to find the container.  You won't need to do any bushwhacking to get to the cache, just look for the traveled areas.  Please replace the cache well for the next adventurer!

Cache 4: Bushed 
In the heart of the tall bushes, this cache lies in wait under natural cover near the play area.

Cache 5: Beware of Trolls!  
This cache is located between some of the playing fields in the area and on a path that takes you across a neat little bridge.  While scouting the area for a good place to hide, we didn't see any trolls, but that doesn't mean there won't be one there when you go searching!  Some stealth may be required for this find depending on the amount of nearby muggles.  Please replace well for the next adventurer! 
Latitude/Longitude:  N 42° 12.080 W 122° 41.907

Cache 6: A Shady Hiding Spot
This cache could be considered a quick park and grab yet offers a nice shady spot to watch any games that might be going on at the fields.  There are plenty of spots to hide a cache here so let your instincts guide you as you search around.  Please be stealthy if there are plenty of people around and replace the cache well for the next adventurer! 
Latitude/Longitude: N 42° 12.133 W 122° 42.039
