Clue 1

Finding treasure is quite surreal

We’re back again to add IGH Days zeal

Public property in particular a park

Not far from where you might hear a bark

Explanation: Surreal references Ernst, the founder of surrealism. Bark references the fact that people can be seen walking their dogs around the park regularly.

 

Clue 2

Put your best foot forward as you forge ahead

Per the rules no damage to put this to bed

Park on the street as two are hot

Ponder this clue as you start your trot

Explanation: Dorchester Cir and 77th Ave. appear as a P in aerial photographs near the hiding spot.

 

Clue 3

As you drive and rock out to your jam

And our treasure remains on the lam

Look for a thoroughfare oh so busy

And a large structure to make Euclid dizzy

Explanation: Refers to Concord Blvd. and the large power line structure in the park.

 

Clue 4

Places to play and places to hit

Are near the place where our treasure sits

Look for half of what is normally whole

And not in a way that you’ll win a Bowl

Explanation: Makes reference to the half basketball court in the park.

 

Clue 5

Inappropriate names in a public domain?

I would certainly think we should have refrained

Are both sides lucky or is it a myth?

You’ll have time to look as you ponder the rift

Explanation: Refers to Dickman Trail and 77th Ave which are near the park.

 

Clue 6

Look east of where the pin goes in

Let nature tell you just where to begin

Enjoy your walk as you hunt for the treasure

Our clues interwoven just might bring you pleasure

Explanation: A pin that goes in is a dowel. Interwoven refers to the fact that the treasure is in a knit pouch.

 

Clue 7 - MEDALLION FOUND AFTER CLUE 7

At the base of a tree you’ll collect your fee

As you hunt for the treasure for fun

Step up to the plate and don’t be late

And hit a 440 foot homerun

Explanation: States the treasure is hidden at the base of a tree and that it is approximately 440 feet from home plate of the baseball field.

 

Clue 8

Start at the tower of great power

Make sure you stand on the path

270 paces around is advice sound

To avoid failure’s wrath

Explanation: Provides the location of the treasure.
