A good friend of mine wanted to experience a mini ghost hunt. She was curious about what I do as a paranormal investigator, and what it all entails. I suggested we go to a cemetery which had been created for the B.C. Penitentiary prison of
New Westminster, and she was in agreement,
not realizing what the adventure would bring.
She invited a good friend of ours, and on a sunny winter afternoon, the
three of us met up for our journey.

The unmarked cemetery is situated not far from the
As it involves going through property owned by the Queens Park Care Centre, I

it. The grass is overgrown, with
blackberry bushes growing wild. One has
to be careful where they step. Feces
from wild animals, dogs and cats are found scattered throughout, thorns of the
berry bushes easily hook into trousers and socks, and because the ground is wet
and soggy, it sinks in areas. If you
plan a trip to this plot of land, I suggest you wear hiking or gum boots and
long pants. Woodlands Memorial Gardens
