I didn't know anything about "Pinocchio Pumbkin" until I saw his relief on a tree in Harrison Park (which adjoins Moir Park.) Once I saw the relief, I looked and looked for the pumpkin and finally found him. You can find him by heading south of the parking lot on the paved trail until you get to Nine Mile Creek. Go left until you get to a drainage pipe. Stand on top of the drainage pipe and look at all the tall trees surrounding you and find the pumpkin relief on one of the trees about 12/15 feet up the tree. Stand under the relief and take a compass reading of about 160 degrees and walk about thirty steps in a straight line to Pinocchio Pumbkin's home base - a tree. At the base of the tree there will be a hole where Pinocchio Pumpkin lives. He likes to sit out on the terrace on moonlit nights and admire his profile!!!
