Geocache Description:

So. St. Anthony Recreation Center, 898 Cromwell Ave. 6.02 acres. This cache is ON the playground equipment.

Stealth necessary (though the park seemed relatively empty when we went at 5:30 on a Monday night).

Blurb from the Eustis Street in "The Street Where You Live" (p91):
"Samuel S. Eustis (1815-1884) and his wife, Emily Clark Eustis (1819-1909), had a farm directly west of this street named in 1885 as part of St. Anthony Park. Samuel was born in Maine, Emily in New Hampshire; together they came to Minnesota with their children in 1855, settling at 'Groveland,' as the Midway area was then called. In 1867 they bought 200 acres at $14 an acrea in an area today roughly west of Highway 280 and north of University Avenue. Their farmhouse, built in 1872, still stands at 31xx Fourth Street SE, Minneapolis, but it is now converted to apartments. The farmland was gradually sold off in the 1880s and 1890s for railroad and commercial use at prices of $1,000 to $2,000 an acre."

How can you live in the SOUTH?
How can you live on the banks of a river
When the floodwater pours from the mouth?
