Nestled away in the southern section of the
"Surrey Corridor" lies the upper middle class area of Crescent Beach. Within
this otherwise typical neighbourhood is a beautiful, green area called Crescent Park.
Encompassed by towering evergreens and thick groves of deciduous trees this spot offers a
perfect get-away for bored local youth to gather on weekends and summer evenings.
Numerous reports have been given of a mysterious fog
like apparition seen hovering, rising and generally darting about the area. Richard Cook,
22 of White Rock tells of seeing the strange figure coming out from behind a tree one
balmy July evening as he and a few friends walked the trails. "It just popped out and
stood in front of us before it darted by us. It came so close you could feel the
breeze." On another occasion Jason Vutch and several friends were sitting in
the back of his pick-up truck in the park when ''The Jogger'' as it has become to be
known, streaked by the astonished group of teens at a speed that left them wide eyed and
terrified. They promptly left in the opposite direction.
Trevor Lawrence and Jeremy Olson, both 21 of White
Rock, experienced the strange phenomenon one October evening as the lads were out for a
walk. "We couldn't believe it," said Trevor "It was a huge ball that looked
like fog that was lit from the inside, it kept rising, then disappeared. It looked
like a flash, like a picture was being taken". Still others tell of strange
drum-like sounds emanating from the woods surrounding the park. Jeremy spoke of the
steady sound of "Indian rhythm's" he and Trevor heard that autumn evening.
"They were pretty scary." Two teenage girls spoke of seeing a nude man
running through the park one day. He was covered in blood. "It totally freaked
us out." said one of the girls who asked to remain anonymous. All in all, the strange
stories continue to surface from this strange area in "The Surrey Corridor".
