The Eternal Flame Falls section of Chestnut Ridge Park (Orchard Park, NY) is threatened by the development of a new frisbee golf course.
Here are a few of the negative environmental and recreational impacts that the new course will bring, many of which are already visible at the current frisbee golf course located within the same park:
-The purposeful creation of course “fairways” involves cutting down forest trees. Some trees have already been cut down within the Eternal Flame Falls area.
-Course fairways - both intentionally and unintentionally created - ruin the viewshed of the popular trails throughout this area, by creating forest openings.
-Concentrated foot travel along "herd paths" across creeks speeds up erosion into the nearby gullies. The new course is designed in steep terrain, already sensitive to erosion.
-Frisbees inflict hundreds of wounds upon countless numbers of trees within the course, which hasten tree mortality.
-Poorly-situated frisbee golf holes run across popular foot paths, and errant frisbees are a safety hazard to those using the park for other means.
-Soil compaction from foot travel restricts the regeneration of the forest understory. Young trees cannot grow in hard-packed soil.
-Careless individuals tear branches and entire tree saplings.
-Noticeable amounts of litter - from water bottles to beer cans to broken frisbees - are found throughout the course.
-Holes located along gullies impose a safety risk to the players of the course itself.
-Course-related noise affects the relative tranquility of the area.
The original course is approximately a mile long, and the collective impacts upon the forest are evident throughout its entire length. Please do not let this happen elsewhere within Chestnut Ridge Park, especially not in the scenic Eternal Flame Falls area.
The Eternal Flame Falls area should be maintained for its traditional uses – passive recreation and scenic enjoyment.
You are so right

Also, nothing multiplies dork more than playing golf and tossing a plastic disc around. When I see one of those dirty filthy hippies playing it I will make sure to punch one in your honor

Holy crap you’re right. These hippies are taking over the ‘golf course’ and charging people to play. How the fûçk do they get away with that?!?!?!

The park gets none of the money. Something stinks here real bad. Maybe a drug sniffing dog should show up at the next tournament ....

We are glad to find out that you are a pollack with a large comical head. Watch out for those frisbees so they don't hit that fat thing when you are at the park hugging a tree.

See, it’s not the park that is charging. It’s the hippies. It’d be like me, coming up with some dumb ass stoner sledding sport, then setting up a course at Chestnut, then charging YOU to play my sport. The State, County or Park isn’t getting any money from this. But during the tournaments, you and I are not allowed to play frolf because the hippies own it (unless we pay to play).

ridiculous NOT rediculous.

the eternal flame was inteded to be left alone and as natural as possible the course should be moved to another area of the park

Nothing says natural beauty like a leaking gas line underground polluting the creek. Who are these filthy hippies to come and remove all of the hypodermic needle filth that has littered thy spot for over a decade. Damn all of these people who volunteer to walk along with garbage bags and clean up the mess a few of our juvenile children leave behind because were not watching them. I have every right to park my fat lazy ass in the woods and stand in the way of people trying to a play a game for free that all are welcome to play while they enjoy the natural beauty of the woods around them. I also have the right to sit in the outfield of any pickup baseball game or in the endzone of a pickup football game and get beaned or speared to my hearts content. And all these dirty filthy rotten hippies are so mean when they say "hi, beautiful day isn't it?". Such smug arrogant people out to ruin our park. And it's dangerous for them to play by the gullies that I walk by all the time and see children climbing right in front of their super responsible genius parents.

I play frisbee golf - and I can tell you this. I'd like to see you try to punch me while I am playing a harmless game - someone would be eating some turf and it wouldn't be me.

Whether it is part of a forest or not, it is part of the state park system. Why don't troopers go in and clean it up? I am sick of excuses. I am sick of the lies. Since marijuana has been legalized in 13 states for medical purposes, it gives all losers license. Maybe they should read new medical evidence derived from its legality. That probably wouldn't work because their paranoia leads them to believe that everyone is out to get them no matter how illogical they are. they all live in a bubble. Education is the only thing that frees people. Drugs just make you believe that you are enlightened. Drugs are for weak, lazy, ignorant people. They should look at themselves the way others do.
