13. Beware! Spooky Skeletons Underfoot
A stroll through Kingston, Ontario’s McBurney Park isn’t your typical walk in the park. Underneath the grassy surface lie thousands of buried bodies. In 1819, the land was the Upper Burial Ground, and served as a resting place for Kingston’s dead until 1864. By the 1880s, city officials had constructed a park on top of the burial plots to make the area more appealing to the area’s growing residential population. Unfortunately, the dead had other ideas. Over the years, gravestones and bones have popped out of the ground at McBurney Park, spooking unsuspecting visitors and earning the area a fitting, yet freaky, nickname: Skeleton Park.
