Cemetary to Kill 'Dead Children's Playground'

There are 40 comments on the Groonk's Newsmine 2.0 story from Oct 16, 2007, titled Cemetary to Kill 'Dead Children's Playground'. In it, Groonk's Newsmine 2.0 reports that:

“It is thought too dangerous for most children to play in.”

This is a bit of local folklore that's about to make way for more dead people. A place to bury the dead apparently means more money for the city. via Groonk's Newsmine 2.0

It is a playground next to Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville. The swings and slides were removed and many thought it was going to be destroyed but they were replaced with new equipment and it is still there. There is a video on youtube about it.

I have been to "Dead Children's Playground". This is a really spiritually active place. My friend and I went several years back. We could hear footsteps and could feel strong presence around us. I felt like someone was right behind me... following and watching.

OMG, hilarious. I have sat in that playground many many nights late with my friends partying in my 20s and we never saw a thing. We use to hang out there all the time. I use to meet my girlfriend there late at night and would sometimes sit by myself for an hour or so waiting for her. Its a hoax as is the Hells Gate on Green Mtn. A few years ago I went up there at about 3am by myself and sat there for an hour on my hod and saw nothing. We use to party at Sallys grave too, nothing. Hoax hoax hoax...I would have no problem going to the playground right now by myself and sitting for an hour.

I went there tonight October 30. This place is haunted! The swings were swinging and I heard footsteps in the woods! Thats some crazy stuff! I was curious and went down to the swings and heard little kids laughing! I immideatley got the hell out of there! If you want to go, Halloween would be the perfect night because a girl exactley a year ago from October 31 shot herself in the head on the last step entering the playground! Im going tomorrow around 9:00. The best place to park is the church located right past the playground on the right. If you park there the cops will not see your car parked at the enterence. If your not scared maybe Ill see you there tomorrow!

A big group of us went there one time, id heard the legends for years and was always too scared to go,we drove a few of our cars up there and went down into the playground..the swings moved but it could have eaisly been the wind..we gave up and started to leave, then one of the girls that was with us car lights cut on..her car did not have automatic locks and no one else was in the parking lot. We hauled ass outta there.

so yeah it is fun to at least check the place out, you might see something and you might not..but now the gates are locked and the cops are there regularly after hours..but its just as creepy during the day.

There are also story's about the cemetery next to it that are pretty creepy too.
