Geocaching Challenge- Winter Carnival

The 2024 geocoin design featuring a fireworks display

Our community volunteers are pleased to share a newer outdoor geocaching activity that we hope will connect you and your family to Riverview's amazing outdoor green spaces during Winter Carnival! They have created a unique “Adventure Lab” called “Riverview Outdoor Adventures" that will teach you more about the community's parks, trails and open green spaces. Complete the Adventure Lab to earn a limited edition Riverview Carnival 2024 geocoin.

What’s Adventure Lab?

Geocaching Adventure Lab is a newer platform that allows you to create, play, and share location-based experiences. The Adventure Lab app guides players through the process of finding clues, solving puzzles, and completing Adventures, one location at a time.

How do I get started?

  1. Learn how to geocache here.
  2. Grab your electronic device with cell service (and be sure to turn location services ON).
  3. Download the Adventure Lab app (available for iPhone and Android).
  4. Create a free account/profile.
  5. Open the app and search for local tours. This Adventure Lab is entitled “2024 Riverview Winter Carnival". You can then read the description, location, and comments on the activity log.
  6. Once you have arrived at the first location of the tour, click the “start” tab on the title screen your chosen adventure. The compass icon in the top-right corner of the screen will point you in the direction of the first/next point of interest on the tour. The cool thing about using GPS is that the location you are trying to find is shown on the screen and the meters will “count down” to tell you if you are moving in the right direction. When you get to within 5 m of the “location,” tap your screen and the interpretive stop information will come up.

How do I get a Winter Carnival Geocoin?

The 2024 coins have all been claimed, however we do have coins from previous years available for folks who complete the 2024 challenge. 

Complete the Adventure Lab “2024 Riverview Winter Carnival". This Adventure lab will be LIVE around February 1st. Please note, the Town and community volunteers do not control what time or date the caches are published. Check the website often.

To pick up your trackable, you will need to show a Town of Riverview staff or community volunteer that you have completed the adventure. You have the following options for pick up, first come, first served:

  • On Sunday, February 4 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. Community volunteers will host the initial opportunity to pick up your coin at the Riverfront Trail gazebo. The code for this activity is GCAJ01K.
  • If you miss the event, the coins will be available at the Parks and Recreation office, located at 55 Biggs Drive. Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • If you are visiting from out of town, please leave a self addressed envelope with 2 stamps in the mailbox at 55 Biggs Drive with a note and email a screenshot of your information to

This year's design is inspired by a photo taken by Evgeny Fradkin of Infinity Aerials of the 2023 fireworks display at Winter Wonderland Park on Quinn Court. Winter Carnival Ignite marks the annual official opening of the festival.
