Dead Children’s Playground

Maple Hill Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Huntsville, Alabama.

On the grounds of the cemetery, there is a park.  It is located at the bottom of what looks like a crater.  The official name is Maple Hill Park; however, locals call it Dead Children’s Playground.

It is a popular place for paranormal investigators and ghost hunters to visit or conduct research.  According to local folklore, the park is haunted by the children in the cemetery.  At midnight, they come out to play on the swings.  It is said, the swings will start moving and you can hear children laughing in the middle of the night.

  1. Somehow I hope this is true, that deceased children get to play forever and be carefree for eternity – they deserve that.

    Plus, if they get to scare some living grown-ups while playing on the swings, I’d say that’s a bonus!
