Park Passions

Geocaching. A tech version of the old scavenger hunt. Participants use a GPS to hide and seek containers.

Jam Sessions. Music soothes the savage programmer.

Playing Rugby. An excellent cure for lab-fever.

Trial Riding. Using a motorbike or mountain bike to slowly negotiate man-made and natural obstacles.
