Thanks to the generosity of Rick Holder, a wonderful expansion to a great walking program for seniors is going to be offered to the "70 and over" population of Amherst and other near-by towns. This will make a nice New Year's present for many of our neighbors. 
Senior Active Healthy Living Walking Program

In partnership with Amherst Parks and Recreation, The Hampshire Dome and the NH WellPoint Foundation are delighted to co-sponsor a program to enable local citizens 70 years and up from 8 surrounding communities to walk the cushioned track at the Dome for free this winter. Our Active, Healthy Living Program makes it possible for seniors to keep active, maintain their physical conditioning, and enjoy the unique environment the Dome offers during months of most challenging weather.

The program is available to residents of Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Lyndeborough, Mason, Milford, Mont Vernon and Wilton, starting December 3rd, 2018. 

In announcing the program, Rick Katzenberg, President of the NH Wellpoint Foundation said "I am thrilled by the eager cooperation of the Hampshire Dome in enabling this exciting program to be opened up to our local seniors. We have tested it on a small scale but this multi-community rollout will make healthy exercise an easy and safe option for those who enjoy outdoor walking the rest of the year. In addition to providing healthy exercise, the social benefits during winter when folks feel constrained to their living area is also a great addition. We look forward to a great many individuals and small groups taking advantage of this generous offer by The Hampshire Dome and our foundation".

The Dome will be generally available for walking (except for during special events) from 11 AM until 2 PM weekdays. It will be important that you check the Daily Schedule or call in as there will be days we will not be able to open. For daily schedule or more questions visit (click the Daily Schedule Link at top left of page) and look for times when the track is “OPEN to All” or to call in to 673-8123 prior to coming out to the Dome.
