Then one day, Mae was strolling in the park when suddenly she noticed a box under the park bench. Intrigued by it, she decided to pick it up. ‘Who could have left it here?’ wondered Mae. ‘I’ve gone by here many times and have never seen something this strange before’. She was sure someone had forgotten the box so she decided to bring it home.

"under the park bench" I'd say "under a park bench".
"have never seen something" I'd say "have never seen anything"
