The Lowell Riddler: Riddle #7 of 2022 Solved

The Lowell Riddler is hiding medallions in and near the City of Lowell and offering area residents the chance to win a prize of local gift cards. Look for a new clue or riddle each Saturday!

Here’s what the winner said about finding the medallion:

This was a tricky one. They all are tricky, but this one was more so. My sister Lisa, husband Mark and I were a bit stumped, but this time I figured it out all on my own without their help!

After reading it over and over I knew it was a sign, a no enter zone or wrong way! I checked out a few signs around town but saw nothing hidden on them! Also, one of the clues dealt with a wrong shape; if you’re thinking sound; and if you’re not thinking round. Bowes road kept popping up in my mind, but I wasn’t surer until the 2nd clue was posted. I still knew still it was a sign near a no parking spot (no peas zone). I had to look for a guard rail (shall silver guard it) at the end of a road or walk area, and along with a diamond shaped sign (think diamond hearted).

After sifting through more thoughts, I jumped in my car and headed to Lowell to look around for a diamond shaped sign near a no parking zone that you can’t enter. I first checked out Valley Vista dead-end streets but came up empty. I then headed to Bowes Road and started on the west end and looked for a guard rail, no parking sign and sign with a diamond shape and came upon the spot it was resting!
I was so excited I found it and couldn’t believe it and happy no one seen me jumping up and down and yelling I found it!

Keep it up Riddler as my whole family is enjoying the hunt!
