March for Parks 2023 event

The 22nd annual Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board’s March for Parks fundraiser will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2024 at Twin Lakes Park in Greensburg.

What is the March for Parks? The March is a fun event to raise money for park and trail projects in Westmoreland County. Marchers can fundraise for new projects and improvements in four regional parks: Cedar Creek Park, Mammoth Park, Northmoreland Park, and Twin Lakes Park. Marchers also have the option to fundraise for the Westmoreland Heritage Trail “Middle Gap,” the Five Star Trail relocation project, Mammoth Lake improvements, land acquisition, or wherever most needed.

Participants collect donations before the March, either individually or as a member of a team of three or more. Organize friends and family, your school, place of worship, organization, or business.  Show your team spirit by wearing matching shirts, choosing a funny team name, or setting a fundraising goal for friendly competition. You can even register your dog to be part of your team! You do not have to be on a team to participate in the March for Parks; register on your own if you wish.

On March 23, marchers can check-in at the Twin Lakes Park Nature Center starting at 10:00 a.m., turn in their donations, pick up an official March for Parks t-shirt if they donate $30 or more, and participate in fun activities and games. Activities include: musical entertainment, a BBQ pig roast lunch and other refreshments, a raffle basket auction, and more. The event will conclude with an optional “march” around the upper and lower lakes at 11:00 a.m.

The March for Parks is a special event hosted by the Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board and is sponsored in-part by the Labor United Celebration, Spitzer Toyota, and UPMC East.
