From I-95 exit West Bound at Linton Blvd in Delray Beach.
Take Linton West for 1.3 miles, turn left (south) onto Old Germantown Road and go straight. On your right is Blood's Grove (stop for a bag of Florida oranges) and on your left is a fire station. The entrance to the park is on the left. If you get to the elementary school you have gone too far.
Try to park at the end of the lot in one of the two spaces on the right. The box is hidden under bricks behind a tree just into the wooded area at those two parking spaces. Standing in the parking lot facing the woods, you will see the school to your left and the restrooms to your right.
A tree had fallen across the path, but it may be deteriorated by now. The bricks are supposed to be ON TOP OF the carpet.
