On my trip getting the metro state park caches somewhere along Hwy 95 (along the eastern border) I noticed as I was going by that someplace along this stretch of Hwy there is what looked like a mini themed park. Could anyone help me as to what the actual location is and what the name of the park is called. Was mentioning this to another party here at work and there are interested in maybe visiting the place. I think it is north of Stillwater, but not sure how far.

Any ideas or help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

I remember seeing some sculptures off the side of the road while driving around the Lindstrom area while visiting state parks last year, not sure if that is what you mean with a themed park?

The one I am thinking of is called Franconia Sculpture Park and got this cache hidden right inside it, GCZ67R.

If I'm not mistaking to me it looked like a cinderella or something right by the entrance to the park. There has to be someone that has seen this. Just wish I could remember where it was at exactly.

You might be thinking of Wild Mountain Recreation area in Taylors Falls. You can see parts of the facility from 95. They have a water park, camping and RV spots and the Alpine slide in the summer.

That might be the ticket. I don't have kid's so I don't normally look that close at those things. All I seem to remember is that is was north of Stillwater and on the west side of the road. Embarassed I guess I should be a little more observant of these things while I'm driving. But hey I'm a cacher and I had my mind on that. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Thanks for the help. Hopefully this is the place I was referring to.
