Geocache Description:

Welcome to Golden Gate Park. It's a beautiful haven for wildlife of all kinds, including buffalo, blue herons, roosters, squirrels, raccoons and fish. In our tour of the Golden Gate Park, you'll pass by habitats for all of these animals and more.

Throughout the years, many animals have called GGP home including elephant, zebra, bear, kangaroo, emu, and ostrich. In February 1927, Park Superintendent John McLaren suggested that the city find a better-suited site to create a zoo, and in 1929, the animals became part of the nucleus of the San Francisco Zoological Gardens, a project of Park Commissioner President Herbert Fleishhacker. The zoo's connection still remains: Golden Gate Park's eucalyptus trees supply tender leaves to feed the zoo's koala bears.

During the tour, you'll collect clues to decode the coordinates and find the zoo at N37 4A.BCD W122 2E.DBF. Please don't leave swag in the zoo. The animals get rowdy when they have competition.
Please enjoy, keep your hands in the moving vehicle at all times, and don't feed the wildlife.

Next to the Bercut Equitation Field, there's a blue water fountain. How many buttons are on the fountain? This is B.
Near Middle Lake, an inscription on a bench talks about Milo. His birth date is 11/14/8_. This is C.
At the corner of JFK and Chain of Lakes Dr E, there's three sets of stairs and a windy path. If you're lucky, you might also see some roosters. How many steps are on each of the three sets? This is F.
How many yellow poles can you see when you're standing at the North East corner of North Lake between No Biking and the Welcome to Golden Gate Park sign? This is D.
On the bison paddock fence, there are signs with small letters and numbers on the bottom right. What's the first number? This is E.
In the Off Leash dog area, what's the max number of dogs you can walk at any one time? This is A.

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
