Cemetery, ball field balance elusive in Amherst
There are about 17 recreation fields in Amherst, although none of them are owned by the town. Three of those fields, known as Cemetery Fields, will soon be shut down as the cemetery trustees take ownership of the property, leaving just 14 ball fields to service thousands of games, practices and tournaments each year.
In an effort to address some of the town’s recreational needs once the conversion takes place, the board of selectmen introduced a warrant article requesting that $180,000 be spent to purchase a portion of the nearly 48-acre parcel that includes Cemetery Fields on Merrimack Road along Route 101.
