At this playground set up near the cemetery, the ghosts of children play and swing on the swingsets. Apparitions have been seen, and captured on film by paranormal society investigations; orbs have been reported as well. The swings sometimes can be seen swinging by themselves, and the sounds of laughter and children’s voices can be heard. This occurs from around 11 p.m. until 3 a.m. Who the children are is uncertain; there are two stories circulating. One is that around 1960, a group of abducted children’s bodies were found on these grounds. Another is that they are simply children who have been buried over the years in the nearby cemetery.
