Welcome to the Amherst Parks & Recreation Department Amherst, NH

All recreation programs are canceled or postponed until at least May 4th.  For any classes that have already started, we will be offering a prorated refund or account credit for that program. All refunds and credits will be processed in the next couple weeks and we will start with programs that have already started, then programs that are set to start in the next three weeks.  Some exercise classes are being run electronically by the instructor.  Participants should hear something from your instructor in the coming days.   Any program with a start date of after April 3rd is still on as scheduled. 
If Amherst Schools are closed, all indoor recreational facilities will be closed as well including the Recreation Office.  Please call us at 673-6248 or email if you need assistance.   
We encourage everyone to utilize our town hiking trails. 
-Please follow social distancing guidelines.

The Amherst Recreation Department will be posting a weekly newsletter of activates for all ages and families to do within the suggested CDC guidelines.  The ARD will also post daily exercise offerings, scavenger hunts and other fun videos on the Amherst Recreation Facebook Page to get us all through these times. 

We would love for folks to take pictures and post them to our page so we can see how you are make the most of this situation.

Please remember to stay active and enjoy family time.
