Geocache Description:

"On the fifteenth of May, in the Jungle of Nool
In the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool,
He was splashing... enjoying the jungle's great joys
When Horton the elephant heard a small noise.
So Horton stopped splashing. He looked toward the sound.
'That's funny,' thought Horton. "There's no one around."
--by Dr. Seuss

(cache was called Newell Park v 2.0)

Newell Community Park, 900 Fairview Ave. N., 11.96 acres. There is a muggle-free approach, but with the elevation, your GPS might deceive you. FTFs can choose from a variety of wooden nickel sig items!

**Please don't crank the lid on too tight when closing it up.**

Blurb from "The Street Where You Live" p196: This ten-and-one-half-acre park at Fairview and Hewitt Avenues, acquired in 1907, is named for Stanford Newell, a member of St. Paul’s first park board. This park is a living example of the oak savannas, or "oak openings", that covered much of the city before white settlement.

I have a family full of folks with the last name of "Newell", so who better to place a cache? Have fun.
