CLUE 8-August 31, 2020
In 1948 this park came to be
Thousands of our forbearers this park did see.
A prop symbolizes those lost at war
With most urgent prayers there’ll be no more.
The Jays, Mudcats and Lakers home
And lifelong baseball fans here do roam.
CLUE 7-August 24, 2020
No luck you say at that park
And you still feel in the dark.
Then seek two parks with all their games
Which honor two local names.
CLUE 6- August 17, 2020
Two parks down and three still afoot
Maybe in the next you’ll find the loot.
A natural park great for a hike
With scenic vistas of the Pike.
CLUE 5-August 10, 2020
When the summer weather makes you sweat
We two provide swimming so don’t fret.
Grab a towel and hit the beach
The Medallion may be just in reach.
CLUE 4-August 3, 2020
Now take that number minus one
equals five community parks for fun.
But in which parks do you look
The next clues will take you off the hook.
CLUE 3-July 27, 2020
Business support is the Chamber gig
To find the medallion please don’t dig.
To start your trek, think roundabouts.
How many do we now tout?
CLUE 2-July 20, 2020
Fifty years in fifty Days
Virtually in many ways.
Hunt from home you can do
but zero likelihood of winning for you.
CLUE 1-July 13, 2020
Friends and family come on down
Lakefront Days is back in town.
Form your teams; see city parks
Follow the clues; it will be a lark.
