The March For Parks is THREE times the fun! We're holding Marches at three locations in 2016: Twin Lakes Park, Cedar Creek Park, and the Turtle Creek Extension of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail at the Murrysville SportZone.

Registration begins at 8:30am and the Marches start at 10:00am. ALL MARCHERS must report to the Check-in Station at each March (there will be signs posted at the event). There will be a lot of people to check-in, so the earlier you can arrive, the better! We will be awarding prizes around noon, so be sure to stick around after the March!

When registering, please check which March you'll be attending:
  • Twin Lakes Park in Greensburg
  • Cedar Creek Park in Belle Vernon
  • Turtle Creek Extension of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail at the Murrysville SportZone

You will turn in all contributions at the March. Also, be sure to register your dog for the March for Parks!

What is the March for Parks?

To march, you must collect contributions (donations) to support parks and recreation in Westmoreland County. You can collect donations individually or as a team. 3 or more people are needed to form a team; organize your friends, family, school, place of worship, or business. Get as many people to register on your team as possible, and set a fundraising goal for each team member. The team competition is a lot of fun! We will be honoring the Top 10 teams from all three events.

INDIVIDUALS who raise $25 or more will get an official March For Parks t-shirt or doggie bandana. Individuals who raise $150 or more will get a gift card. You must turn in all contributions at the March to be eligible for all prizes. You may turn in cash or make checks payable to "WCPRCAB."

Gift Cards and T-Shirts are based on INDIVIDUAL contributions. If you have raised team money and wish to have it credited accordingly, please fill out a contribution form for each team member!

Where does the money go?

You can designate your funds raised to these exciting new projects in our County Parks and Trails:
  • 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

THANK YOU to last years Marchers and Sponsors!
