Conant Park is said to be haunted by ghostly figures with no faces. According to legend, they drive a van and kidnap girls off the street, and when (if) the girls are released, they are far too frightened to explain what happened to them.

  1. I lived in Hillside for over 7 years and I never witnessed any ghostly presence in Conant Park. This is a fact behind the park a few thousand feet they grew marijunia plants and this was discovered in 1991. Just a hundred feet from the ballfield.

  2. I lived on Avy Street for yrs with my son just us two. My son used to sleep walk ALOT, so he used to sleep with me. One night I woke up to him in a panic, he told me there was a transparent female sitting in a rocking chair by my side of the bed combing her hair and fixing her nails, upon making eye contact the woman smiled at him kindly but upon realizing that she frightened him, he said she got sad and vanished. Not sure what it was all about, I used to often walk the streets for exercise and often passed by Conant and the cemetery on N broad, not sure if I brought company home one day. My attic was also sealed shut and it was resealed upon leaking one day. IDK

  3. the ghostly van is urban myth, however the suicides that have taken place there should be a possible source of a haunting. Native Americans have also been sensed in the area around the river.
