To log this waymark, you must be able to prove to the waymark owner that you were at the park in question. This probably means a photo. The photo must be identifiably at that park, so having your GPS in the photo might not be a bad idea (alternatively you may include a recognizable landmark)
If you have a dog, photos of your dog having a good time would also be appreciated.
