This series of mini boxes takes you through some of Redlands parks.
Box 1. Memorial
Begin at Jennie Davis Memorial Park at the corner of Redlands Blvd. and New York St. From the Memorial (Flame) go to your right along the street to the corner of the park, and continue around the corner to the left. Follow the path along the wash just across from the park. As you reach the end of the park, the path turns right. Go another 50 steps past the small tree at the turn (there is a lightpost on the right about 35 steps past tree), to a larger tree on the left about 3 feet off the path. The camouflaged box is hanging on the back side of the tree about 3 feet up in ivy. The box can be reached best from the left side as you face the tree. Be very discreet.
Box 2. Zanja (Reported Missing)
Begin at Sylvan Park at the corner of University St. and Colton Ave. From in front of the California Historic Marker #43 cross the stone bridge to your right; and keep to the left as you cross the grass toward the Redlands Lawn Bowling Club. Take the small pathway as it curves left and then turns right. When you turn right the camouflaged box is in the ivy to your right about 3 feet past the corner, about 1 foot up. As before, be very discreet, there are lots of watchful eyes about.
Box 3. Duck Pond (Reported Missing)
Begin at Ford Park at the corner of Parkford Dr. and Marshall St. (take Parkford off of Ford St. next to I-10). From the large rock in the Park with the Plaque dedicating the park (vandals have removed Plaque, but big rock on cement slab is still obvious), go 135 steps west to the old green flagpole (no flag). Before proceeding read the rest of the clue, and make sure you are not being watched. Line up Big rock with flagpole and continue 30 more steps, dodging tree at 15 steps, to a pipe sticking out of the ground (was painted blue) in front of a pine tree. The camoflaged box is hanging on the back side of tree about 4 feet up close to the trunk. Please re-hide in same location.
Box 4. Theatre
Begin at Prospect Park at the corner of Cajon St. and Highland Ave. Continue up (southwest) Cajon to the large wooden park sign on the right and park along the street. Take the path behind the sign and turn left and head uphill. At the road go left along the right side of the road and take the path to the right through the opening in the split rail fence (where the road curves left). Follow the brick waterway through the orange grove to the parking lot. Cross the lot and road, and take the left path through the trellis archway. Follow the path to the left along the bamboo and turn right after the funny roofed building to the Avice Meeker Sewall Theatre entrance. Go to the stage side of the theatre booth and walk left behind the back row. The box is at the base of the post at the end of the concrete walk (where it meets the asphalt) under some rocks and leaves.
Box 5. Flowers
Begin at Caroline Park at the corner of Sunset Dr. and Mariposa Dr. To get there go back to Cajon and Highland and head southwest on Highland, turn left on Center St., right on Crescent Ave., left on Allesandro Rd. (past the Hillside Memorial Park), left on Sunset Dr , and left on Mariposa. Park along road at the steep left turn across from one of the park’s entrances. Take the Sunset Canyon Trail to the right and go 60 steps past the trail sign to a V-trunked tree on your left. The box is behind the sycamore tree under rocks and leaves 20 steps straight ahead.
