Please stay off playground equipment!
Also, please note the Skate Park (Alice Rice Peace Park) at the Northtown Center is closed. Stay safe and stay away - Thank you!

[AMHERST POLICE, NY] -- Town of Amherst officials are asking residents to keep children away from playground equipment. The inability to sanitize thoroughly and consistently led to the decision to post signs at all playground equipment in town.

The parks are open for those wishing to utilize the open spaces, just not the playground equipment. Remember to maintain 6โ€™ apart.
