When necessary, the Parks Department treats turf and flowerbed spaces with herbicides to control and inhibit the growth of noxious or invasive weeds when mechanical removal is not feasible. All treatment activities are regulated per the Adopted Herbicide Policy and Practices.pdf . Any application of herbicide is done by a certified Pesticide Applicator and all precautions are taken to ensure that there is no danger to the public prior to, during, or after applications.
Below is a list of Parks properties treated with herbicides:

We wanted to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our amazing Emergency Childcare staff who stepped up and delivered when we partnered with the Astoria School District to provide free childcare to critical and essential personnel in our area. That service ended on June 10th and provided care for over 20 families and 30 children.
