Long Description:
In one of Des Moines most popular parks a mysterious door has appeared at the base of a tree. Knock and no one will answer, but open it and inside are letters. Apparently this humble abode is owned by a magical entity named Seamus O'Grey...a leprechaun perhaps?! Leave Seamus a note and he'll seemingly write back. An inquisitive, friendly little guy, his messages seem very sincere...
