What's Up Rec?

There are plenty of ways to keep active this fall

There’s coolness in the air and fall is starting to set in, but don’t let that stop you from being active in all our outdoor recreational spaces. All parks, trails and tennis courts remain open. Please note our washrooms are open daily from dawn to dusk.  

The Amherst Stadium is full steam ahead, and here’s a friendly reminder about the Helmet Policy. The Town of Amherst is committed to the safety of all individuals and groups using the Amherst Stadium. Therefore, for the protection and safety of the public, the wearing of a Canadian Standard Association (CSA) approved protective ice helmet is mandatory. We look forward to working with you to ensure safety is our No. 1 priority.
