      From the person that found the medallion – To clarify: The medallion was found in Central Park near the drain/culvert at the west end of the pond. As you’re facing the pond from the grassy area you would walk left and it’s the next drain/culvert at the edge of the pond. First drain past the pickle ball court. The medallion was on the top edge and slightly to the right of the culvert as you’re facing the water. Within two feet of that culvert in tall grass.
