Support our parks & trails at the March for Parks on March 27

March for Parks 2021 newsflash

The 2021 March for Parks is taking new approach to stay safe & healthy!

The 19th annual March for Parks fundraising event is taking a new approach this year! Due to pandemic precautions, we aren't able to host the traditional event in two locations with festivities and food. Instead, there will be a more widespread opportunity to support our 10 Westmoreland County parks and 5 trails on Saturday, March 27. 

We will have 9 registration locations around Westmoreland County for participants to check-in with their donations on March 27: 

  • Twin Lakes Park (Greensburg)
  • Mammoth Park (Mt. Pleasant)
  • Northmoreland Park (Apollo)
  • Cedar Creek Park (Belle Vernon)
  • Bridgeport Dam Park (Mt. Pleasant area)
  • Westmoreland Heritage Trail - Export
  • Westmoreland Heritage Trail - Murrysville
  • Ann Rudd Saxman Nature Park (Donohoe Road, Greensburg)
  • Historic Hanna's Town (Greensburg)

On March 27, marchers (and their dogs) can check-in with their donations at one of the locations listed above any time between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., pick up their t-shirts or doggie bandanas if they turn in $30 or more, and then march/walk/explore at their convenience. Online registration will be available soon! You can also donate online when you pre-register; online donations are made through PayPal (you do not need to have a PayPal account to donate; just an email address!). If you cannot attend the event in person on March 27, you can pick up your t-shirt at Parks office in Greensburg. Please check the appropriate box when you register online.

While the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic is causing difficult and challenging times for everyone, our parks and trails have been busier than ever! Getting outside is a great way to strengthen our immune systems and improve our health and wellbeing. We have done our best to make our facilities safe and accessible during this time, and a place to go when there weren’t many places to go. Safety is our priority, and preventative measures like social distancing are easy to do while enjoying our parks and trails. 

Online registration will be available soon! Click to download the 2021 March for Parks brochure and flyer. Please visit the March for Parks event page for more information!
