Join us this year for the annual March for Parks, a fun event organized to bring local communities together in a significant way to support Westmoreland County trails and parks.

The march will be held in two locations on Saturday, March 21, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  The Murrysville March for Parks will be held at the Murrysville SportZone with proceeds primarily benefiting the extension of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail (WHT).  Funds from the Twin Lakes Park march in Greensburg will be used for upgrades to the Twin Lakes Dog Park, renovations to the lake walls and pathways for improved fishing and walking, and improvements to playgrounds, parking areas, and restrooms at all four regional parks.

Community and business participation are essential contributors to the success of the annual march. Already groups are forming teams and collecting money for the March, while local businesses are contributing as sponsors, in-kind donors of food or activities, or towards a raffle or silent auction item. Together we are making a real difference not only in funds raised, but in demonstrating to other funders of our county parks and trails that there is tremendous community support for these projects and worth their support as well.

Registration at the March for Parks begins at 9:00 am.  The march (not mandatory, but fun) begins at 10:30 am.  Come learn about exciting future trail and park plans, our region’s rich heritage, and local community groups. There will be lots of fun activities for adults and children at both locations.

At Murrysville, bring your unique antique treasures to be appraised by a professional, snack on tasty food, take a chance at raffle baskets and silent auctions, and more! If you would like to donate your used bike or bike equipment of good condition, drop off is at Friends’ Thrift Shop in Export. All proceeds until March 31 benefit the March for Parks.

At Twin Lakes, there will be raffles, silent auctions, a fun dog contest, a community art project, caricature drawings, a giant soccer dart board, music, tasty food, and more!

Additional information is available at www.co.westmoreland.pa.us/MFP or search for Westmoreland County March for Parks.  Here you can register, make donations, and learn about forming teams.

Now in its 18th year, overall proceeds from the March for Parks have raised over $1 million dollars for Westmoreland County Park projects and trails! Please keep this momentum going and support the March for Parks today!
