Haha! You really have proven that you have an IQ lower than 70. Instead of making stupidly false assumptions, why don't you try to gain some real knowledge? Oh... you can't comprehend any of it. The only thing you have correct is that my mother is an alcoholic.

I would say your insults are clever, except that my 8 year old cousin has come up with better. She's developmentally disabled and she can form a more coherent sentence than you.

By your logic, if I am a school dropout drug hustler, what does that make you? An inbred Down Syndrome victim with massive head trauma from your mother trying to reinsert you anally after you were born?

I just came home from Child's Park - Why are we looking to upgrade this park? Are we going to charge an admission fee for out of towners? Are we going to allow them to continue to leave there garbage thrown about? Are we going to allow them to disregard the signs that clearly state NO SWIMMING? People have no respect for the park now the way it is, why are we looking to upgrade? Where are the Rangers on this beautiful weekend? I did not see one Ranger - Please remind me again, who are we upgrading the park for??? Let's clean up the mess that is there right now before we look to spruce it up any! Start charging a fee for out of towners, have people wear an admission wristband - you'll see how soon people find another Free park to trash! Our taxes are high enough -
Are you kidding? That "park" was an absolute dump. If I wanted to see nature decomposing, well, that is pretty much all of the Dingmans area. What we need more clearings, fields and "real" parks for kids to play in, not woods with fallen rotten trees everywhere. No swimming? Get over yourself, if it was such a beautiful summer day- let the kids enjoy it.
High taxes? You're kidding, right? Get higher than a 6th grade education, get a REAL job (not a local yokal BS Dingmans Ferry job) and you will realize taxes here are dirt cheap! That is one of the reasons we came here, but soon found out that like all things- you get what you pay for! The sooner we can leave this inbred dump of a town behind, the better!

Dont recall the commercial... First of all im not lazy, im a busy active person ass.. and yea i would love to waste my day working at parks outside, cleaning up and redoing trails. But people need to make a living, and make money these days....NJ's expensive i was planning after college i would love to buy acres in P.A. by Delaware River i want a log cabin.. im just saying it would be ashame too charge people for a park. Nature should be free.. And the whole Blame game on out towners.. And i'll admit Seaside Hts. is nasty but my area is nice and the garbage is controled properly. Shit Go to Jamaica not the shore..

I had the chance to go to Childs Park this summer. It had been 30 years since I was last there and I was shocked at the condition of the park. I spent most of my summers in my childhood in the park as we lived about a mile up the road. The area has changed and like everything else for the worse. I will have to agree on the swimming...they enforced the rule 30 years ago...why not now?

Bob each summer it gets worse, this year there were even dogs in the water. The rangers sit in their trucks and read - what a shame!

It's not the rangers that have trucks. That's the maintenance guys, who have no law enforcement powers. In the summer, the rangers get stuck at Smithfield Beach sorting out all the illegal chili pickers and dragging dumbass busted up swimmers out from the waterfalls after they jump on rocks. 30 years ago, people respected Child's Park. Today, it's just another place for the scum to trash.

I know this is a year late, I obviously don't dwell on message boards day in and day out. Your assumptions of us couldn't be more wrong. Welfare- please, that is what we pay into so the typical DF resident can feed their family. Toothless? Really? Again, that is reserved for the natives as well.

Park for kids? Which one? The famous "Dingmans Park" that we were told was being built over 5 years ago? You know, the one that **still** is not completed (like everything else around here, our kids will be parents before it is done). There is that smaller park in Milford we go to once in a while, that is OK if you can deal with the people ignoring their children and making them your problem. We typically go to Airport Park in Matamoras- much nicer than anything local, but like everything else around here, it is a half hour drive..

The only other thing I have seen was Aknack (sp?)- umm- no thanks..
