Kendrick Park Playground – Submit your Feedback!

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
https://www.amherstma.gov/3527/Kendrick-Park-2020 for more information,
including the preliminary design that was presented to the Planning
Board  in March, 2020, and a link for submitting comments.
