Notice the swings, the slide and the stairs leading to the lake. Go to the fire pit near the pump. Walk around the outside of the pit until the entrance to the pit is at 12:00. Look for the letterbox between the two pink rocks located at 7:00 near the bottom of the wall.
Please be sure it is carefully hidden after you stamp in, so it won't be found by non-letterboxers.
