TOWN OF MERRIMACK ATHLETIC FIELDS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has been a rapidly evolving situation over the last few days. State and Federal officials are directing everyone to limit their contact with others to combat the spread of COVID-19. 


Our Athletic Fields in Merrimack typically start opening up for the season in Mid-April, but effective immediately all of Merrimack’s Athletic Fields are closed until further notice.

The start of spring sports seasons will most likely be impacted, to what degree we are not yet certain. With the weather warming, we know that individuals and groups will be wanting to get out on the fields. We are at a critical period in the fight versus COVID-19 and social distancing is crucial to winning that fight. Please help us to accomplish that goal by staying off the fields!  We will provide an update as information becomes available.
