Stow Lake Ghost

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Stow Lake Ghost

This story has been around for over a century. In Golden Gate park, a lady was walking her baby in a stroller. As she sat on a bench to rest, she didn’t notice that the stroller had rolled into the lake. She asked everyone she saw if they had seen her baby, and finally went to look in the lake and was never seen again. Urban legend has it that at night, a statue in her honor will come to life and ask you if you’ve seen her baby.
