Have you heard of the Lakewold Monster?

Rumor says it is a creature that evolved as the climate has changed and caused harm to Lakewold’s native flora and fauna. Displeased with the treatment of its home by humans, the Monster is said to emerge from Gravelly Lake to seek revenge as the days transition from daylight to darkness.

Don’t believe the rumor? Come and see for yourself at Lakewold Gardens. . . if you dare!

Join us the Last Two Weekends of October
for Spooky Fun for the Whole Family. . . if you dare!

The Lakewold Haunting

In a faraway land of lakes stands an especially beautiful home, encircled with acres of lovely gardens and abounding in great trees and mysteriously fragrant rare plants. Over the years, as the climate changed and the weather became unpredictable, the family who lived in the house abandoned the property. No one is there to mow the lawns, weed the flowerbeds or rake the leaves.

The house, still clinging to the memories of parties, movies and picnics, longed for companionship and threw open its doors to the garden. The plants slipped indoors so silently that only the garden creatures could hear their green tendrils crawling across the floor and up the walls. One by one, leaf by leaf, greenery of every kind embraced the house. Little creatures scurried under the floorboards, and great fierce birds and bats perched on the beams of the great room admiring their new jungle habitat.

Slowly other strange beings entered through mysterious new portals. The house sighed as ghostly spirits flitted from room to room. The plants and the creatures were very sad because their human friends had abandoned their home and had done nothing to counter the changes in the climate. The family had left the plants and garden creatures to fend for themselves. This made the whole garden community angry. The plants promised to use their long green tendrils to exterminate any human intruder, and the tiny creatures swore they would chew human invaders into garden mulch.

BE WARNED! Enter the garden at your own risk. Listen, watch, and be on guard. Do no harm to the plants and creatures because the house has EYES. The plants have deadly tendrils and the animals have tiny, very sharp teeth!
