Family Friendly Geocache Challenge with Des Moines Parent

family friendly geocaches in des moines iowa

I’m excited to announce my first local geocache challenge! I worked with Erin at Des Moines Parent to pick fun spots on the west side of the metro and then hid a cache at each one. All caches are less than a half mile from the parking lot, and hidden in an easily accessible spot (as in, you could bring a kiddo in a stroller and get to them) with lots of kid treasures inside. Also visit this post on Des Moines Parent for my thoughts on each park and why I love it – as well as the coordinates if you would prefer those.

If you haven’t geocached before, I recommend using the (free) Geocaching.com app and I have a full picture tutorial on how to get started, in this post. Each of these caches has a hint, if you get stuck, see below for where to find it!
