Overview

Twin Lakes Park is our favorite among the parks, and is, in our opinion, the jewel of the Westmoreland County parks system. This is no easy feat considering the natural beauty and great facilities available at her sister parks. Twin Lakes Park has received national recognition for its programs and barrier free facilities.
 
Paved walkways encircle both the lower and an upper lake over a distance of 2.5 miles, providing one of the most pleasant walking and exercise paths in Westmoreland County, and one that is handicapped accessible. Waterfowl can be seen at almost any time of year.

Fishing enthusiasts visit Twin Lakes Park year round, and there are even handicapped accessible fishing decks. The PA Fish Commission stocks both lakes with game fish, including a winter stocking that attracts ice fishing enthusiasts to the frozen lakes in the dead of winter. Live bait is available year round at the Boathouse.

Twin Lakes Park is most famous as the host location for the Westmoreland County Arts & Heritage Festival, a tremendously popular arts and crafts extravaganza held each year for several days around the July 4th holiday. The Westmoreland County Arts & Heritage Festival has been named one of the top 100 events in North America, and there is no more appropriate place to enjoy this extraordinary festival than at beautiful Twin Lakes Park.

Facilities

Twin Lakes Boathouse, located along the lower lake, provides rental of pedal boats, rowboats, and canoes. Food and drink concessions are also available.

Twin Lakes Park Activities Center is available for year round rental. Accommodating groups of up to 100, the building is headed, but not air conditioned. Activity Center facilities include a small kitchen, indoor restrooms, and a reception / meeting room.

Peach Plaza skate park is free to the public from 9am until dusk.  The skate park features quarters with bowl corners, three sets of stairs with two handrails and more.  Skaters welcome!

Seven pavilions are located throughout the park, with accommodations for groups of up to 200.
