Catch the Myth at Hummel Park

  • 3033 Hummel Rd.

Hummel Park has a strange lore. Most superstitions and urban myths center on the supernatural. Disappearing stairs, Satanic rituals, stuff like that. And that’s why Hummel Park makes for a great stop on your 4/20 celebratory excursion into the outside world.

Hummel Park oscillates between very chill and very haunted. It’s fun to check out the sites with your loved ones, share ghost stories, and score valuable time with nature.

Plus, it’s a great place to walk your dog. You and your four-legged friends can investigate timeless mysteries. With all the mystery in the air, it will be easier to do some deep thinking about everything from the universe to what’s really in your food.

It’s worth noting that Hummel Park dispels rumors of the park’s past – and for good reason. And although some of the rumors are more well-known or morbid than others, they do get people wanting to travel to the park to judge its energy for themselves. And what better time to do so than on 4/20.
