Amherst Central Park Task Force


The vision for Amherst Central Park is to structure, design and create an exemplary multi-use park with broad year-round appeal. Its range of activity will draw from natural resources, environmental sciences, the fine arts, sports and recreation, historic preservation, and even medical research and care – each with leadership intent. This premier community asset will serve as a safe and inclusive space for individuals of all ages to play, learn, reflect, gather, engage and enjoy in perpetuity.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop and oversee the creation of Amherst Central Park as a location where all people can enjoy a full measure of natural, cultural, social, educational, and recreational opportunities. Through the preservation of greenspace, we hope to create an environment where Amherst demonstrates its commitment to advance the fight against climate change. Using broad collaboration, we aim to establish a place that will become self-sustaining over time and that encourages creativity, discovery, and wellness in body, mind and spirit.
