"Out There...Somewhere:" Is It Really Augusta's Most Haunted Place?

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Kenny Boose and family and friend were at Pendleton King Park for a little disc golf, and even this close to Halloween, they had no fear of being here.

"Never heard of it being haunted. I wouldn't be here if it was, I'm scared of ghosts," said Kenny.

But, Augusta has plenty of places for ghosts and ghost stories, there's the old Medical College of Georgia building on Telfair Street, haunted by the Resurrection Man. And, there's ancient Magnolia Cemetery...that's scary.

"Of course, that's one of them," offered Kenny.

And, don't forget the Haunted Pillar, which is on the historical record for being haunted.

But, in this town where there are ghost stories by the gallon, guess which spooky spot tops the list, according to a blog I found by googling "haunted places in Augusta".

Pendleton King Park!

"No, I haven't heard that," said Kenny.

"Oh no, that's not good," said Katie Beresford.

Dogs can sense spirits, so that explains the strange behavior in the extremely frightening dog park in Augusta's most haunted place. 

Pendleton King Park is capitalizing on this haunted legend. Check out the park logo! That will scare you, that's scary. It's a little red bird, and hey, Alfred Hitchcock made a pretty scary movie about them.

Leo Badonsky was at the park, but he wasn't the least bit jumpy. "Boo, did I scare you?" I asked. "Not at all," said Leo. "No, you're in Pendleton King Park," I said. "Yeah, I know," he said.

So, it's Pendleton King Park, where you could find those horrible, adorable hounds, or phantoms with the Frisbee.
