*This box is missing*

Welcome to El Segundo, the small town in a really big city! El Segundo is Spanish for "the second" since the city is the site of Standard Oil's second refinery in California. Read more about the city at http://www.elsegundo.org/.

To find this box, take a walk down Main Street to Library Park, an idyllic place for a picnic, jog or stroll. Wedding ceremonies and live concerts take place in the landmark gazebo, so make sure the park is not crowded. Walk towards the back of the park to the corner near Richmond Street & Palm Avenue. You will see a green and white wooden archway. Have a seat on the concrete bench nearest the gazebo and look between the end two white columns. (You may need to wait a few minutes for the area to be clear) The five-trunked tree is the hiding place for this letterbox. Reach inside the trunk and take the letterbox back to a bench to enjoy. In this box you will find a hand-carved stamp, a handmade logbook and a prize for El Primero finder. Make sure you bring your own ink or markers.

Please be stealthy and replace the box tightly back up and inside the trunk and cover with leaves.
