WALKING TRACK HOURS EXTENDED - The Town of Amherst has further increased the time the walking track at the Amherst Stadium is open to the public.
The walking track will now be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, with the exception of when paid activities, such as an Amherst Rambler Jr. A hockey game, is taking place at the stadium.
Walkers no longer have to preregister, but they will still have to provide contact information in case contract tracing is required and physical distancing must still be followed. Current provincially mandated COVID-19 protocols also limit the number of walkers on the track to 25 at any one time.
The town is also now able to offer public skating. To see when the public skates have been scheduled, please go to: https://amherst.ca/stadium-calendar.html.
The current COVID-19 protocols limit the number of skaters on the ice at any one time to 60.
