Geocache Description:

A small stroll through Lisbon looking at the parks it has to offer. Bring a calculator and a pencil!

Who would have thought that such a small town would have several parks.

I only knew of the one main park but found a few others that I think others should visit.

This is a three stage multi-stage cache which should take you much less than an hour to hit all stages and find the film canister cache.

Be sure to bring the kids so they get to visit the fun parks of Lisbon

You will start out at the posted coordinates as Stage 1:

Take the model number of the monster 3 person slide and divide by 17939.8 to get AA.AAA
The result will be N 41° AA.AAA

Take the model number of the slide that goes down in a circle plus the model number of the double kiddy slide and subtract from that sum from 1096443.727 to get BB.BBB
The result will be W091° BB.BBB

Stage2:

Take the number of pictures of a baseball bat and multiply it by 3.0679 to get AA.AAA
The result will be N 41° AA.AAA

Take the number of e's in the foreign language warning and add 10 to get BB
Take the integer of the oldest age the play equipment is designed for multiplied by 45.1667 to get CCC
The result will W091° BB.CCC

Stage 3:

Take the number of Red connectors in the domed monkey bars and multiply that by 9 then add 1 to get AA
Take the number of all colored connectors in the domed monkey bars and multiply that by 4.577 to get BBB (drop the decimal digits)
The result will be N 41° AA.BBB

Take the number of Blue connectors in the domed monkey bars and multiply that by 3 then add 1 to get CC
Take the number of posts at the pavilion and multiply by 92 to get DDD
The result will be W091° CC.DDD

Follow the final coordinates to the cache!
