Geocache Description:

A multi-stage exploration of Roosevelt Park.

Roosevelt Park has undergone some recent modification in the last few years as part of Rapid City's 2012 program.

1. Pond moved.
2. Outdoor pool removed (replaced by one at Sioux Park).
3. Garden added.
4. Indoor pool and waterslide added.
5. Indoor ice arena added.
6. Landscaping and sidewalks added throughout the area.

The multi-stage cache explores the area around the park and complexes to familiarize you with what Rapid City has to offer. You may even come back to see a hockey game, swim, pinic or walk your dog!

Each step will require you to write down a number and use digits of the number to determine the location of the micro cache. Each digit corresponds to a letter in the final stage.
