Barnard Park

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Barnard Park

Barnard Park was once a cemetery, and it is rumored that when the city moved the bodies and turned it into a park, some of the bodies were missed. Several apparitions are said to roam here late at night, most notably a woman who was following the Mormon Trail and lost her daughter, who died at a camp on the site. The woman’s apparition appears crying over her lost daughter.

  1. I actually used to live in Fremont Nebraska. and when I used to live in Fremont I only lived about 6 blocks away from there and I would go to that park all the time around 2-3 o clock in the morning.

  2. June 15, 2015 my friend & I were walking home from a movie & we decided to take a break & sit down in the gazebo; & of course being us we took a picture. As soon as we did we began to here footsteps & other noises coming from nearby things & startled us a lot so as we began to walk out she turned around & asked me if I saw it too.. I looked back then looked at her & was like that man.?! & she just nodded. So of course I turned on my camera & we began to walk faster then run she kept looking back so I finally did; we saw this figure of a man following us. & the weird part about it was we couldn’t see his face but there was nothing covering it but it was dark out but, we also had the flashlight & street lights.. Finally we stop running & we see these 3 kids that look about our age but I remembered seeing them earlier walking the opposite way. Now we were getting creeped out a lot so I called my sister & we walked to Bergan & stood there waiting for her & then from a distance we see lights flashing from a cop car not far from where I live.. But where we were at as we got closer to the lights I realized we were far away.

  3. Last night me and my friends. Being us we had to just go look and chexk out the rumors so we did. Around 4 oclock we went there and took a look around we saw nothing strange until we looked over at the swing and we saw it swinnging but there was nobody there i dont know of it was the wind or what happened but we juat all got really scared and ran away.

  4. Back in the 60’s a group of my friends rode a bike there to Ridge Cemetery. We heard and seen things and we scream and ride our bikes so fast. I left town in the beginning of the 70’s and have thought about and talked about.

    my fiance a friend of his and myself went there because my fiances friend was a skeptic but was willing to be proved wrong. they were from out if town so i suggested bernard. spooky but nothing too bad. we got there around 2:30 am and walked around doing sporadic recording in different spots of the park for about an hour and a half…i have multiple evps but my favorites are 1 a young child saying something along the lines of help im lost 2 a womans voice in the womens bathroom yelling to get out(my fiance set the recording inside) 3 a mans voice saying something sounding confused(i set the recorder within) and finally 4 a young child saying wee like they were enjoying the park…i still have these evps and they still blow my mind
