Ghost report by Lindsay on April 8, 2015:
“As an individual that has been seemingly sensitive to the paranormal my whole life, I have grown to have possibly less fear then the average person. I have experienced ghosts related to family members passing, and have chased historical ghosts at a number of places in Manitoba with many spine chilling occurrences I could write about. But this one recent occurrence had me VERY freaked out…
I was jogging at La Barriere park, in which I had done maybe a handful of times in the past during times when there were more people around. This particular time, however, it was just me and my dog, as far as I had seen since entering the park. I was jogging around on my second loop of the small forest path, without headphones in, when I felt the swooshing of someone running past me. I thought it odd, and was instantly afraid because of us being alone in a treed area, with no wind. But I went on my way and dismissed it.
A few minutes later the same thing happened, accompanied by the sound of children giggling in the distance. I have to say, I was again, afraid, but also relieved because I thought “ok good, there is someone else here”.
I decide to head back to my car, and upon arriving realized my car WAS the only car there…creepy…but once again, I didn’t think too much of it, as most would often say I read too much into things anyways.
Several weeks later, I turned on the TV to catch the very last minute of a show on haunted locations in Canada, and happened to see that La Barriere park was in the episode. Having missed it, I quickly googled it to see if I could find some information. And sure enough, it IS in fact a known haunted location Specifically in which people had reported feeling watched, and the inexplicable sound of children laughing in the distance….”
