Chase MacMillan's dad gets a job clearing the trees from an old park to make way for a new store. She hates the idea of cutting down trees and tries to persuade her father not to do it, but he really needs the work. The operation does eventually grind to a halt though with her dad's discovery of a beautifully crafted and perfectly preserved playground hidden in the center of the park. What's even more surprising is who plays there.
Ghost Park was a nice little story that was slightly creepy without being too scary. I liked that the main character, Chase, was interested in preserving the environment while still being sympathetic to her dad's plight of needing a job. I thought Ghost Park also had a great message about how important it can be to let go of the hurts of the past in order to get on with living life. Overall, it was probably my favorite story in the Haunted anthology in which it is found and a pretty enjoyable read. Ghost Park can also be purchased as a separate e-book.
Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review.
