Strathcona Park in Ottawa – Haunted Ottawa Database

Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Type: park
Built: n/a

The following report was sent into our website by Marc on Aug 23, 2013:

“This is about the mounting evidence that Strathcona Park is haunted. One day at dusk a friend of mine and a family sitting at a picnic table witnessed the set of swings move for a while as if someone was swinging. Then stopped suddenly. Everyone freaked out as there was no wind. And swings never stop suddenly, they gradually slow their momentum.

I just got an EVP from that area tonight and there are clear voices of children. I propose that it is the ghost of a 9 year old boy who drowned in the Rideau River, not far from the playground in 2010.

The other apparition is on the path in Strathcona Park. It is of a lady dressed in 1800’s dress with a parasol seen at night. Check the park out!”
