The grand opening ceremony for the recently completed facilities at the Twin Lakes Park Expansion will take place on Saturday, July 11, beginning at 1:00 pm. The event is open to the public and no RSVP is required. It will be held at the Twin Lakes Park Expansion area (the West Recreation Area), which is accessible from George’s Station Road near the Peach Plaza Skate and Action Park.
The Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board is dedicating three facilities at the opening: the David R. Peach Dek Hockey Rink, the Brian T. Rusnock Amphitheater, and the Elizabeth Anna Peach-Bolish Winter Sports Area. The 150′ by 75′ David R. Peach dek hockey rink, named in honor of David R. Peach, son of James R. and Joyce H. Peach, is available for recreational games, practices, league games, open skating and a variety of other activities. The cathedral-style Brian T. Rusnock amphitheater will be host to several free summer concerts. The Elizabeth Anna Peach-Bolish Winter Sports Area, named in honor of James R. and Joyce H. Peach’s daughter, now has lighting for extended sledding and tubing fun in the winter months.
Immediately following the grand opening speaker’s program, Life of Brian band will perform at 2:00pm on the Amphitheater. An exhibition dek hockey game coordinated by Latrobe-GLSD Parks and Recreation will take place at 4:15pm on the dek hockey rink. The dek hockey rink will be open to the public before and after the exhibition game, so bring your skates and dek hockey equipment to try out the new rink! Representatives from Hot Shots Indoor Sports Arena in Mt. Pleasant will be on hand to demonstrate dek hockey skills, and the WestCo Roller Derby team will provide roller derby demonstrations at 3:00pm and 5:30pm. East Coast Turnaround band will perform at 5:00pm. Food and refreshments provided by the Harbor Inn Restaurant and Lounge will be available for sale to benefit the non-profit Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation Citizens Advisory Board.
