1. Coven of King’s Park
The park is a great place to take a long walk or spend a sunny day. But at night, things can be quite different. The 4.06 square kilometer King’s Park, a short distance from Perth’s central business district in western Australia, is believed to be the site of very strange occurrences. One of the creepiest of tales is the one that tells of a coven of devil worshippers that meet at the park to perform their mysterious rites, some of which include creating occult symbols, burning effigies and having orgies right there in the park itself.
The most unseemly of all these is human sacrifice, which came to be linked to reports of missing homeless men. The myth tells of the dangers of sleeping in the park at night, as that’s when one is most likely to become part of the coven’s weird practices. The myth is exactly that, a myth, and has no basis in the truth, but that doesn’t stop people from steering clear of King’s Park after midnight; after all no one wants an encounter with the satanic coven!
