From now until early July the Fargo Park District is inviting the public to watch for little monsters, like the one in this image, that are being hidden in parks around Fargo. Fargo Park District / Special to The Forum.

FARGO — The Fargo Park District is looking for help from the public in finding "little monsters" hiding in various parks around the city.

The Fargo Monster Project is a program designed to encourage activity while providing a piece of art for community members to keep.

With funding from The Arts Partnership, local artisans were selected to create monsters for a community-wide monster hunt and now a variety of monsters are nestled in their eggs and hidden in different Fargo parks for community members and their families to find.

Park officials urge the public to stay tuned on the Fargo Parks Facebook page for more information.

For weekly monster clues, follow the Monstrous Imagination Facebook Event. Hints on which parks the little creatures are hiding in will be posted in the event.


A total of 40 monsters will be hidden between the end of April through early July, culminating in the park district's "Monstrous Imagination" event on July 7.

The little monsters hidden throughout city parks are small, standing no more than six inches tall.

Concealed with the monsters is a card introducing the monster, providing the monster’s back story and including instructions for what to do with the creatures.
