Locals tell a tale of playground sounds that can be heard at night: children laughing, playing and having fun. However, they say eventually the happy noises turn to unhappy ones, as if the children are screaming for their lives.

  1. I lived on Steele drive briefly connects to the park.. on the back side walk through the tree line. Anyways I went walking one night and had approached a gentlemen. Engaged in conversation told him I grew up in Madison. And that I always heard this park is haunted. I asked him if it were true, he gave me a weird look and didn’t exactly say no, I’m a comforting sort of way….
