There is a playground adjacent to Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville that we have heard locals refer to as the "Dead Children's Playground".
It is also called Maple Hill Park and is open daily till one hour after sunset. Make your way to this location and park in the first parking lot overlooking the playground and picnic pavilion. From here take a short walk continuing along the road as it heads toward another parking area. Your stroll will take you by a wooden guardrail. At the far end of the guardrail, start counting your steps. 15-16 steps along the road, you will stop and turn to your right to look uphill. What you're looking for is hidden in front of a multi-trunk tree at its base under rocks and debris. Take caution stepping across the cement drainage ditch. Be mindful of the children that may be playing here, day or night.

(NOTE: It looks like they are changing things up here a little. The gate from the main road seems to be closed now and you can go through the cemetery to get into the park now and the parking area will be to the right as you pass through the stone wall of the cemetery. )
(NOTE: Found ALL gates closed today. You can park on a cemetery road near that end and walk over.)
