  1. I have been to this place many times and have come to a conclusion. First off, there has been NO killings here from a rapist child killer. If you look up the history on this park you will find no real evidence on any kinds of killings here, only tales from other people who heard stuff from another person. I think the things people see here can be explained with three different reasons.

    The most common is other people exploring and messing around in the park at night, even I have scared people here without trying to. Second, people are letting their imaginations get the best of them as it is pretty easy to confuse things in the night. Last, I believe that any negative energy that is in the park was placed there by other people’s own negative energy, until it manifested itself. People coming here with thoughts of evil and tales of rapist killers only draws in negative energy, so its not that there are negative spirits here, but negative energy that has been building up over time

  2. when I was about 3 or 4 I remember I would always play with what I thought was a school of kids. My mom said that she would sit and wait for me, she said that I would be giggling and talking to myself, and that I would go down one of two trails. When I would go my mom said that I would immediately go down that little trail and spend all of my time there. I remember looking at all my “friends” and just wondering how they would always be there when I was there. I also remember that there was this woman that always used to be carefully watching all of us, as though she was watching over us and making sure nothing would harm us. I always used to think that maybe she was a teacher or someones mom or something. After reading this, I got chills and started crying as though I found out one of my family members had died.
