We are the founders of Believers of Paranormal and the Spiritual in Watertown, NY. We went to Thompson Park last week and we believe we have found the location of the vortex. We will return to the ara and investigate it further. Stay tuned.

Posted BY Thor Watertown NY... Honestly a time vortex just because some nutcase with the last name of steeley who worked for the county doesn't make what they say is fact. The fact of this is is false the truth is well known by over 4,000 locals here, one of the main issues is there are 2 Indian burial grounds at this location and the city knows about it so does the police since bones and a grave site were found back in 1990. also back some time in the 50s-60s rumors were around that 2 people were murdered at this location. there has been many interesting things that have taken place ehre fog rolling in and yet no wind, and 70f degrees and no cold, power outages, trees getting taken down, people being chased out of the park aswel, for years the local government has kept this a closed issues and refuses to talk about it. and since the 80s they have the place closed from 9:00pm -5am with police patrolling there and if your caught you get either arrested or a ticket for trespassing. I can state allot more then this archive can even handle, some day we may know the truth about this, and also why cell phone work at times and other times they do not aswel as compass. huge magnetic fields.over the years from 1989-1992 this area was well known for this activity and people today some are stills cared to even go back there. because of what they have seen and witnessed. big mass floating across a field when there is a bight moon ya cant miss it, other reports and evidence are footprints in snow in daytime and nothing there. other report was seeing a woman and a child dressed up in dutch clothing standing in daylight. this place should be a good place for schifi channel to do a show on but i doubt since the city has this all closed up, and lied about the barryal grounds being there. main reason why they lie is they invested millions in to a zoo, and under the treaties with he Mohawk Indians any lands were there is a graveyard they have to give that land back.

I a a resident of watertown and have lived there my whole life. I frequently go Thompson park to hangout or when I am babysitting and such, and I have never seen, heard, or felt anything strange. Sure maybe the rumors about it being an indian bural ground may be true but I have been going there for the past 20 years and have yet to experience anything. I think that people think they experience somthing paranormal but aren't sticking around to try and figure out what the truth of the matter is. I am a strong believer in the paranormal and have gone through some experices that I could not explain, however nothing I have experienced has been in Thompson. If people really want to know the truth then someone should call in the TAPS team from sci-fi channels Ghost Hunters. They would not only document all of their evidence but also try to "de-bunk" all of the pased experiences. Until there is cold hard evidence, I personally could not believe the park to be haunted.

myspace.com/dylanellsworth If you go up there to look for it youll never find it. It was apparently found behind the Zoo, ever since people started talking about it and word got out. now youll see tractors and construction work going on down there. If there was a vortex down there, they covered it up.

Really? I have been to Thompson Park a lot, even got in trouble playing hide and seek after hours as a kid... A vortex? Really? I want to know where this is as i have been at every inch of this park and not even felt weird... Really, if anyone can get solid evidence, show me, as I would love to see it.

I remember my mom telling me about a woman who mysteriously disappeared in the park in the seventies. As a teenager in the 90's my friends and I hunted for the vortex we had heard about in our youth. At some point of my childhood, I remember someone telling me that it was found where three trees make a triangle formation. Never did find it, yet the possibility still excites me.

I went to the park last night, on halloween, in search of the so called vortex, Instead, I heard what sounded like children playing all around me. I looked down at at the side of a bush and saw a flash of what looked to be a boy between 7-10 years of age short dark hair and brown eyes with a blue and white striped shirt. he had a very confused , but yet scared look on his face, and it looked as if he had blood running down his face. As I continued walking I began to feel as if I were being fallowed, so i turned around to see if someone was behind me, and there was nothing there. I continued walking and began to feel as if i couldnt breath then i felt a sharp pain run through my side corner of my back right below my right sholder blade. I am a 6ft 240lb soldier from ft. drum, I have never really been all that bothered by the paranormal, but somthing about what happened last night made me feel a bit uneasy.

I am an officer at FT Drum and have lived here for many years.  I have visited Thompson Park and the Zoo many times.  I can tell you this location does have paranormal activity!  A great friend in law enforcement near here (and is a former sniper) and another friend from FT Drum and I dress up in ghillie suits (so we don't get caught) and go into the park. We have videos and EVP's from many locations and other equipment readings.

Videos of shadows, strange lights, mists, people walking then fade away, animals in the zoo interacting with something, running away or acting aggressively at something walking threw.
Voices of children playing, Indian chanting and speaking, other voices of female and males.

This place is Haunted and the cities around and the police force know about it and do keep it under a cloak of misinformation.  My PD friend has been told not to talk about it and discourage any discussions about it.

I will not post any videos, pictures or EVP's from this location... My carrier could be at stake.  When I retire I will post everything about this location we have captured.

Oh, we think the vortex moves and it depends on the moon to it's location.  It's a theory.

More paranormal folks need to come out here and capture the activity.
