March for Parks

A new approach to stay safe & healthy!

The 19th annual March for Parks fundraiser is taking a new approach in 2021! Due to pandemic precautions, we aren’t able to host our traditional March for Parks event at 2 locations with festivities and food. Instead, the 2021 MFP will have a more widespread opportunity to support all 10 of our County parks and 5 trails on Saturday, March 27, 2021!

What is the March for Parks?
The March for Parks is a fun event to raise money for new park & trail projects in Westmoreland County. Marchers collect contributions individually or as a team of three or more (dogs are welcome to participate, too!).

  • Twin Lakes Park – improvements to the Dog Park, renovating lake walls and pathways for improved fishing and walking
  • Northmoreland Park Master Plan projects - destination playground, upgrades to athletic fields, kayak launch and improvements to lake walkways
  • Five Star Trail expansion project
  • All Parks – improvements to playgrounds, renovating restrooms to become flushable, resurfacing parking lots and roadways
