MERRIMACK, N.H. (CBS) – Crowds, trash and vandalism at a Merrimack, New Hampshire, park have forced it to close.

Officials said large groups of people are coming to Watson Park because of its access to the river.

The park will be closed until the town can install a fence to block the river access.

“The decision to close the park was not taken lightly, but we feel it is a necessary step to curb the poor behaviors that are being seen. Our recommendation to the Town Council is to leave the park closed until permanent fencing, blocking access to the river, can be constructed as the river access is what draws the poor behavior. We have seen openly defiant drinking, drugs present, trash, vandalism and now life safety issues,” the town’s Parks and Recreation Department said in a statement.

Because the park received federal funding when it was built, with a stipulation that it be open to residents and non-residents, the town cannot open the park only to Merrimack residents. The department said the park was a scenic overlook and was never intended to provide access to the river.

 

Just another example that we can't have anything good. People are just freaking idiots. 

 

No matter how much we fight for access. Just one freaking time for kids to ruin it.

My town, 10 minutes from my house. All scumbags from Massachusetts. Pig roasts, doing drugs, drinking, crapping in the woods, having sex in the river. All dirtballs from outta state. I’m glad they shut it down also. Total disregard for the rules and disrespectful to the local police.

The upper to mid Saco is notorious for this stuff. Canoeing and rubber rafting with beach pull offs for partying. Used to do it myself when I was much younger in less troubled times. Whole new deal now.

Sounds like someone needs to hold people accountable instead closing the access to everyone. 

 

Can you imagine if the state closed the mass pike because people were speeding? How about issue citations for violations? That will change behaviors :)

problem is they won't. To afraid of offending people nowadays. Just come right out and call them pigs and slobs in public on tv. Now could you imagine if that ever happened? You'd be fired on the spot and never work in tv again. Although that's exactly what should happen because that's what they are.

GG,

You got it exactly right.   Accountability has gone out the window for fear of offending someone.    Has anyone on this forum ever seen anyone get cited for littering?  There's "no littering" signs all over Ma, and no littering laws on the books.  I'm 67 years old, and I've never heard not seen it.

In the end, it's just easier for the governing authority to just put up boulders DCR style, or lock the gates.

Closing down beaches and parks just displaces this scumbag section of society to other places that are still open; in even larger numbers. They don’t just say “oh well

time to go home and destroy my own yard”. Quit closing places down and instead properly police them. Arrest; fine; make examples of these low life’s.

What makes you think they are all from MA? You don’t think they are coming from Manchester or Nashua? Either way they’re all still scumbags and need yo be fined or arrested.

Because it’s all over my local fb pages. People parking wherever they want. Trust me all from Massachusetts. Who roasts a whole pig underneath a bridge? Disgusting the amount of trash they leave behind that our local workers then have to go in an clean up.

Roasting pigs under a bridge is a Ma tradition?

Easy to point fingers at Massholes. Just so you know, here is your Police Blog full of Merrimack, Nashua, and Manchester Losers.

Don't worry.  Some citizens from Merrimack like to pedal their kiddie porn....but how dare a Masshole leave a piece of trash on their sacred river!

The bigger picture here at least for me. Is because a-holes can’t take their freakin trash home with them. People who enjoy to fish loose yet another place to park/go fishing or just enjoy the beach. It’s just sad that some people think to themselves why should I have to pick up after myself.

Didn't Myles Standish roast a pig under a bridge to court the fair Priscilla?  She scorned him because of his improperly buckled hat.
