Find this giant. He is well protected in a stone pavillion with informative plaques surrounding him. Around him is a beautiful park, with a playground for kids, including a real rock wall that they can climb and play on. There is also a walking path, between the rock wall and the river. Follow this path, passing two benches set next to each other. A little past the benches, take the right hand path which leads down to a grassy area on the bluff above the water. Walk out to the end of the grassy area, past 2 cypress trees, to where you can look at the pedestrian bridge that crosses the river. To your right, a little hidden by foliage, is a small manmade creek that flows over some rocks into the river. If you look down you should notice a partially buried, light coloured rectangular block, next to two rocks. Under the darker coloured rock, in a small hidey hole is the giant you seek.
This is a very popular area, so look around carefully, especially up at the bridge, before retrieving the box. Please rehide as well, or better than you found it.
