    Everyone wants to know if the old farmhouse at Bronte Creek Provincial Park is haunted. Now you can decide for yourself when you attend a Ghost Walk of the house and barns of Spruce Lane Farm. Discover the truth about the supernatural side of Spruce Lane Farm as we share real life stories and extraordinary evidence gathered by paranormal investigators. Listen to personal accounts from customed guides as we tour through our century old buildings by lamp light. The evening tours are not intended to be scary -- this is not a carnival show. This an an educational tour to share occurences, observations and unexplained happenings in the farmhouse while exploring Victorian Beliefs and customs regarding death and afterlife. Tours are 45 mins in length. The tours are not stroller or wheelchair friendly. Before the walk we will enjoy a picnic, a visit to the Childrens Farm and Playbarn, along with an outside swimming pool that is open until 6:00 pm (fees do apply).  http://www.ontarioparks.com/park/brontecreek
