Combining points close to one another to run a Collect Events script

I have a collection of points and would like to run a Collect Events script on them to determine what the most frequent points in the data are.  The points have been imported using XY Data, and due to some variance in the data, there are slight differences in the lat and long of points that are at the same location.  For example, the points are all at a park, but the points within the park are all different due to these slight variations.  I need a way to combine the points that are close to one another into a common point so that I can run the Collect Events script.  Anyone know how I can do this?
