    A Playground to climb and a community hall,

    The shoe is now hiding in a park with it all!

    A large gravel space if you have games to play,

    And a firehall next door to help save the day!

    Come to this park in search of the shoe,

    But also this Sunday to help bash Broom too!

    We’ll be weeding out Wildfire, a tough war to wage,

    This is the park where everyone goes

    To see the market and the “Wild Rose”.

    If you go on a Saturday there can be quite a crowd

    But it’s a great place where that kind of thing is allowed.

    *The market opens in May, so may not be open for the first weekend the shoe is hidden.

    This week the shoe’s hidden in a park that’s south.

    If you look on the Parks and Trails Finder map in Area A

    It’s sure to be down around that way.

    This Regional Park has a river in its name

    And two entrances from roads that sounds the same.

    Park at the Fry, where there’s a pipe nearby.

    To the left there used to grow broom across from the pipe

    But now that it’s cut it’s not likely to get ripe.

    Find the shoe where we will plant some native species in the fall

    So that the broom no longer grows tall.
