Amaranth's system of naming roads is similar to that of the Dufferin County townships of Mono and Mulmur, and the Simcoe County townships of Adjala and Tosorontio. The system names roads running parallel to Highway 10 in Amaranth "Lines." Each is assigned a number from the town line westward in sequence. Roads running perpendicular to the Lines are numbered Sideroads, and are numbered using multiples of five ascending northward from County Road 109.
The township encompasses the communities of Amaranth Station, Blacks Corners, Bowling Green, Campania, Crombie, Farmington, Fraxa, Jessopville, Laurel, Laurel Station, Maple Grove, Waldemar and Whittington.
