March for Parks Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 March for Parks event on Saturday, March 27! Although we couldn’t have some of the traditional festivities this year, over 450 marchers at 9 locations and 75 sponsors raised over $80,000 to support our Westmoreland County parks and trails! 

Marchers could designate their donations to several upcoming projects, such as the completion of the 4 mile “middle gap” of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail from Export to Delmont; improvements to Northmoreland Park; relocation of the Five Star Trail; improvements to Twin Lakes Park; or wherever most needed. We couldn’t provide some of the BEST recreation facilities in Westmoreland County without your help and generosity! Thank you again to all marchers, sponsors, raffle donors, volunteers, committee members, and staff who made the 19th annual March for Parks another tremendous success!

The Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and donations to it are tax deductible (ID #25-1895187). There are no goods or services provided in return for a contribution. 

If you could not attend the March, but would still like to contribute, please send a check made payable to
