Adventure Lab Geocaching at Tulsa’s Woodward Park

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I am into geocaching where I search for hidden “caches” hidden by other people (and I have hidden a bunch also.) It’s a worldwide game with millions of caches in almost ever country. (Check out for more information.) An essential feature is that there is a container that is hidden. Well, that is not appropriate in a lot of places. has added a new twist to the game that doesn’t require a hidden physical object to find.

I love Fall color and fallen leaves.

They have started something called “Adventure Labs” where one goes to particular places learns something about the place and answers a question. It is on a smartphone app that uses the GPS functionality of the phone to make sure that you are at the right place. Learn more Adventure Labs by clicking the hyperlink.

There are several Adventure Lab geocaches in Tulsa right now. The first one I attempted was at Woodward Park. A very old and very beautiful park in mid-Town Tulsa loaded with features such as gardens, ponds, a rose garden, Tulsa Garden Center, and so on. There are five steps to completing the cache. None of which are shown here lest I spoil someone’s experience. Attempting the lab cache I got to see all these sights though.

Woodward Park was built back in the 20’s I love the stone steps. I am sure that each violate hundreds of safety rules. I will tell you when they are wet they are as slippery as ice.

It took about an hour to complete the five steps. I could have done it quicker but it’s not a race, and I was in it for the experience. You have to be within a certain distance before it will let you see what the question is for a given area and your answer has to be exact. It was fun. I already knew the answers to most of the question and I learned some new stuff as well. There are conventional caches and this Adventure Lab cache both at the park now.

So this is my nerd finding for the week. I was just glad to get out of the house after baby sitting contractors for two weeks!!

I am linking up with Our World Tuesday.

    Wow that tree, and how the sun highlights certain parts is the crown! But also love the cone flowers, the stairs, and the leaves in the water:) Never knew you linked to Our World:) Have a great week, Jesh

    What a pretty park. Your photo of the steps is especially wonderful, Yogi! The Adventure Lab sounds like an interesting puzzle to solve while learning new things about a location. It’s amazing how much apps can be helpful and instructional. We have a public health app now available in Colorado that will inform us if we came in close contact with someone who reports having covid. I’m not sure how many have downloaded the app, or are reporting to it, but I could see how it would be helpful in contact tracing. Hope it will help as our numbers are going up and up.

    The photos of fall in Tulsa are wonderful. I love the stone steps. Glad you could get a break from the constant construction. You’ll be finished in time for Thanksgiving!
