Rancho the Elf has been having fun causing all kinds of mischief in the City’s parks! Each week in December, he will be visiting a different RPV park. Use the clues below to find him:

December 1-6

Rancho loves animals, especially dogs! He loves to watch his dog East run and play with other dogs.

December 7-13

Rancho likes to pretend he is the Captain of the great tall sailing ship The Ryan when he plays at this park!

December 14- 20

Batter up! Rancho’s favorite sport is baseball and his all-time favorite player is Fred McGriff!

December 21-27

Did you know that December marks the start of the migration of the Pacific gray whale? Rancho's polished up his binoculars and is getting ready to look for whales at his favorite point and will enjoy seeing any nearby lighthouses.

December 28-31

Rancho grew up in a forest and he loves to go hiking in his free time, so this park on Forrestal Drive sounded like a whole lotta fun!

Once you find him, please take a selfie with Rancho and share it using #RanchoTheParkElf

Participating Parks: Point Vicente Interpretive Center, Fred Hesse Jr. Community Park, Robert Ryan Park, Ladera Linda Park, and Eastview Park.
