Geocache Description:

Listed coordinates are for the "Girls Gate," one of the gated entrances to Central Park. Each gate was named by Olmsted and Vaux, the park's designers, for the type of person they anticipated entering the park from that area. The cache is not there, but is a short walk away.

For over 150 years the little girls of New York City have been coming to Central Park to play their games, and to watch the women of the city pass by and perhaps pretend to be grown up ladies themselves.

For the purpose of this puzzle you have to do all those things as well: play a classic children's game, pretend that Mrs. Grat and, Mrs. Man have taken their dogs Herd and Ringer out for a walk, and of course visit the park!
