About Antelope Park

Located between 23rd and 33rd and Sheridan Boulevard.

Antelope park includes extensive facilities, sunken gardens, Folsom Children's Zoo, 2 fountains, many statues, and playground equipment. There is a bike trail that passes along the edge of the park.

The History:

Antelope Park is the largest park in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Antelope Park Rose Garden sits on land once used to grow hay for the Parks Department work horses. During WWI, this land was converted into the rose garden.

I still have not tracked down a full history of the rest of Antelope Park, however.


The Haunting:

Sighting of human figures have been reported particularly behind the caretakers house, near the memorial.

Observations:

I used to ride my bike past this park daily on the way to work. I was careful never to go near the park at night however as I felt unsafe with the wide open spaces on either side of me at night.

A friend of one of our staff committed suicide in this park. This young man was troubled and used to "drink blood at work" and had some family and home issues. He hung himself from the old swingset at the park about 20 years ago.

Personal experiences at the park include feelings of being watched as well as sightings of ghosts.

I recently went to the park. I went on the swing where the boy died. I was very scary/cool. I very much recommend going to this park. It is very large, yet very fun. I f you are a parent I wouldn't tell your child(ren) that it is haunted. If you don't they will have tons of fun.

I was at home in omaha nebraska all by myself because my parents went to a chirsymas party. that nite there was a knock at the door it was my sister and her best friend. we all were in the kitchen downstairs getting chips. they went into the living room. i was still in the kichen. they paniced and ran into the kitchen they saw a black figure go up the stairs. we grabbed knifes and went to look for the board of hell. we started asking questions. his name was seth. crazy because the story on tv was about a ghost named seth looked just like the ghost. we all paniced and closed my bedroom dorr and was on my bed
