Go ahead, walk through Maple Hill Cemetery. You might want to start early, for this cemetery is the largest cemetery in Alabama, reaching over 100 acres of land. Keep walking until you come upon the cove, then go ahead and walk through the forest. When you have come to the playground, you have made it.
The Dead Children's Playground looks so stunning in the daytime, when it reaches night, not so much. Some say that the bodies of abducted children were dumped here by the abductor, and the ghosts of the children still come to play at this playground. You have the generic sightings, swings moving on their own, children yelling out to their friends and laughing. Also, photos have been reported to have orbs of light in them. Orbs are believed to be the spirits taking form in a ball of light. All this stuff happens late at night to way early in the morning for children to be playing. Don't try to stop those swings from swinging, but as soon as you step away, they will start moving again. You then can see the sand be disturbed, as if a child just jumped off of the swing. However, it looks like it is wood chips currently instead of sand.

The City of Huntsville went and tore down the playground to make more room for plots in the cemetery. The people of the city freaked out, told the City of Huntsville to put the playground back, and they did. Thank you people of Huntsville for saving the place that the children, alive or dead, love to play. I find it cool that there is even a playground withing the limits of the cemetery.
