I was wondering what Canberrans would consider to be the creepiest locations around town? I used to live in Ipima Street, Braddon, in the days before the houses were demolished to make way for high density accommodation and I always found Haig Park to be a bit creepy. The fact it had a reputation as a gay beat and I had heard stories of gay bashings happening there might have influenced my perception but there’s something about it which just doesn’t sit right with me. I always thought one day I’d come across a body dangling from one of the pines.
The other place I thought was creepy was crossing the old Woden Cemetary just on dusk after visiting a friend in the Hospital. I think I was lucky, as I’ve heard of people being mugged in there. Your thoughts?
