THANK YOU to all Marchers, Teams, Sponsors and Volunteers!

Wrapping up its 14th year, the March For Parks events on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at Twin Lakes Park, Cedar Creek Park, and the Turtle Creek Extension of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail at the Murrysville SportZone were outstanding successes! Over 825 Marchers, 40 teams and 50 business sponsors came out and raised over $95,000 to support Westmoreland County’s parks, trails and recreation programs! There are so many people who came to the Marches to make the Westmoreland County Parks Citizens Advisory Board (CAB) March For Parks a truly appreciated event.

The money raised at the March has really made an impact in the community.  Currently, the Citizens Advisory Board and parks staff are hard at work on several projects in your Westmoreland County parks, such as:
  • Cedar Creek Park: Dog Park, Winter Sports Area, Accessible Playground, and R.C. Model Airfield improvements 
  • Mammoth Park: Giant Slide upgrade, Disc Golf Course, Tennis Court and Dek Hockey Court renovations 
  • Turtle Creek Extension of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail: Construction of 5.6 miles from Murrysville to Export and bridge renovations along the trail 
  • Northmoreland Park: BMX Track lighting and athletic field improvements 
  • ALL PARKS: Improvements to restrooms, parking lots, roads, walkways, and other support facilities 
  • Wherever most needed
