Located just north or I-76. You can see the park to the north as you exit off the interstate.
We have not tracked down a history of this park yet.
The trails at Riverside Park run along the South Platte River where a young woman (purportedly a witch) is said to have walked into the river to kill herself. She was, of course, tired of all the taunting and just wanted to "end it".
Similar stories of witch’s offing themselves exist in many places. Often, "witch stories" involve a hanging, occasionally a burning at the stake, etc., and every now and then, the stories include a crazy character (the witch) who offs herself because she’s sick of being taunted.
