Kendrick Park Playground Update

The Town of Amherst is designing a playground for the children of Amherst, to be located in Kendrick Park.  The Planning Department, LSSE and DPW staff are working together to prepare a design, with input from the public.  During the summer of 2019 the Town of Amherst applied for a PARC grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and was awarded $400,000.  In the fall CPAC (Community Preservation Act Committee) and the Town Council voted to match this grant with about $260,000 from town funds to build a playground that will serve Downtown Amherst.   Despite the covid-19 pandemic, work is proceeding, and LSSE and the Planning Department want to hear from you before a design is finalized in the next couple of months!  Please see for more information, including the preliminary design that was presented to the Planning Board  in March, 2020, and a link for submitting comments.
