  • coincidence or not

    my brothers and their friend were at this park around 11-12 pm and were just there exploring and then my oldest brother went to the playground alone and (my brother was being stupid and was mocking about what happened to her and there was like a rollor coster chair swing that you could push the top up to get in then close it to swing and after when he was mocking her then he went alone to the playground and then the top flew down because it was up and he ran to his other friends and told them then they all went to the swing and the noticed that you had to put a lot of force to push it down i dont know if this is just a coincidence because it was windy or this was really the lady giving him a warning i dont really know because i wasnt there my brother just told me the story they might go back there but who knows i was watching some past youtube videos of people investigating this place and it shows that she was r4ped and k!lled there in the bathroom or at the park and she traped there because of this but this is just what happened to my brother so i dont know if its a coincidence or her.

  • I've witnessed this to many times to count

    I was born and raised right here in Mesa and went to Jefferson elementary from k-6th grade. And when I was a kid it was the closest park around so I went there for many birthday parties and other get to get hers and even just to play. When I got into my late teens I had some friends that lived in the corner house across from the darkest part of the park back by the soft ball field and volleyball court. And when we would all be hanging out at our friends house his mom would kick us out for being to loud so we would end up at the Ramada by the volleyball court and this park is very dark. But I remember when I was a kid I heard about the woman that was raped and left for dead in the park just before midnight among several other stories of stabbings and shootings there. It was a real bad area when I was a kid. But one night when I found out the haunting was more than a myth my friends and I were hanging out at the park and we usually seen or heard weird things there at night but this night somewhere around 11:00 pm I heard something that made my blood run cold and by the sudden silence of my friends i wasnt the only one that heard it. But I heard plain as day a female voice cry for help not just once but several times like she was in desperate need of help. We called out to her a few times and we heard it some more, but as we ran around looking for her we never found her. And when you thought you were headed in the right direction it would move somewhere else. But that next weekend we were all there again and this time we heard her at first and then I seen it across theway by the softball field I seen and so did my friends a silhouette of a person walk from behind a tree to another one but instead of passing by the tree and keep going suddenly it came out from behind another tre a few yards away from the one it went behind going the opposite direction. And it kept doing this like it would go behind a tree and teleport to another to walk out from behind. So we decided to find out if it was really someone out walking around or not and took of running to catch the person but we were never able to catch it the closest I got was like 5 yards away and it went behind the tree I was running towards but there was nothing there when i got there and as close as i was when i seen it that time it was still just a really dark shadow and it seemed to be most active between 11:30 and 12:00 am but it is still pretty scary and definitely never went in the park alone at night after that

  • a very eerie park pt. 1

    went 2 nights ago with my friend and gf. once the lights went off at 10pm things got pretty weird. my friend got a bad headache suddenly and started seeing things out of her peripheral vision. we tried our hardest to stay til 11:30 (cause that’s when i hear people usually see her) but just couldn’t. felt too eerie. whole ride home we felt that weird tingling sensation through our backs. gonna be giving an update here soon. going back with my gf sometime this week.

  • I think I may have heard a paranormal shriek

    I went there twice. Didn't actually enter the park because it's closed but walked slowly adjacent on its sidewalk. First visit was at 10:00-10:30 pm. The park shuts off all their lights after 10:00, so it's very creepy in the park with no lights on, don't know how people can see ghosts in such darkness, but yeah I can imagine how horrific it would be to stand in the middle of that park at around 11:30 pm in pitch darkness and experience ghosts, that would be like shrill terror. When walking by the park from the westside at around 10:20ish, I thought I heard an "Eeek!" from the middle of the park. It was a girlish sounding shriek, but no one was in that part of the park that I could see, and it was dark as night in that area. This sound could've also been poultry because there was definitely poultry chatter arising from the adjacent neighborhood. I left the park to return at the designated time, 11:30 pm. When I got there I asked a departed uncle for spirit protection, because he's helped me in past. When I got to the grounds, eeirily a fire truck with no lights on drove onto the premises then drove off. My uncle was a retired fire fighter for Tempe. I didn't notice anything odd in the park, but there were people near the swings, probably vagrants, with dogs. I couldn't see them because so dark. No lights on in the park. I left, fearful of being jumped because so dark, and it's an easy place to be a victim of armed robbery or assault. I stayed until 11:45, then got out.

  • Not sure

    Went there 4 different times and there was times where we thought we saw something but we’re not sure. Don’t know if it’s true but it’s still an eerie feeling.

  • never say never

    tbh me and my family go there all the time to play softball and take the kids to the park to play, but we never heard or seen anything, but when we get back home we do hear weird things going on like random stuff falling down we didn’t think much of it cause our uncle just pasted away so we were thinking it’s him who knows though.. it’s not a bad park.

  • Unsure

    A friend and I went to see if this was all true. We didn’t hear anything. My friend couldn’t see anything. I swore I saw something but I wasn’t sure. Only thing I can confirm is we both got really nauseous and weak out of nowhere and were fine when we went back to my truck. Probably going to go back soon to try again.

  • Hi23

    I went to the park and was scary she wanted me to call me . She came so close to me multiple times I took an emf meter said there was multiple ghost around the area. The lady even screamed in my ear. I it was a horrible experience. I will never go there again I was walking there around 11:30 to if she was real and she was of course. I brought my ghost box tried to talk to her spirit she admitted to every thing they say is true. She even could be heard saying she did not like me. She is one evil spirit. Got home felt weird when I went to bed I hear a book fly off my book shelf . All night slept funny then I hear another scream in my ear . She is real every one!!!!

  • Dead rats

    My family has owned a house in the neighbourhood right by the park. Ive lived here my whole life and i never noticed anything strange until recently when my sister went to visit the park and midnight with her friends to do god knows what. After she came back she started saying strange things about how "we shouldn't disturb her" after this we started hearing loud footstep in our attic. And ive found about 5 dead rats around house. When we called pest control to check the attic. They said there were no signs of live and we were probably just hearing things.

  • Felt watched and eerie

    When I first got there I got a weird vibe like a presence was there I just kind of felt watched and I thought I heard footsteps or noises in the park even tho nobody was around I swore one of the animal play things that u sit on (idk what it’s called) at the playground was staring at me like there was eyes following me as I walked but I could’ve been trippin tbh...I don’t know the park was creepy but overall besides it being haunted it’s a pretty cool park! Pretty big too.

  • One Pumpkin Park

    We went in broad daylight and put minimal effort in to tracking this ghost. Park offers monkey bars and a zip line so that’s cool.

  • An eerie feeling that someone is watching you!

    I live in this neighborhood, right next to Jefferson Park. Athough I never saw anything, the few times I was out walking past this park after dark and little late at night, I got the feeling someone was watching and\or following me... Even swore I heard the crunching of leaves behind me like someone was walking through them, but I swear nobody was around... Super creepy feeling, but kinda just blew it off thinking I must be tired or something at the time... This was --before-- I knew about this Park being haunted! Uh yeah, now that I know, I won't be out walking by there anymore past dusk... Ever!
