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:

Brianna Bowker has led our Recreation Division since 2018 and she’s worked tirelessly since then to raise the bar for the many programs and activities she oversees: youth and adult sports, pre-k childcare, special events, summer camps and after school care for elementary students, and much more. Brianna is a driving force for our department and sets a positive example for the staff she leads and the patrons she serves. We wish we could say more to emphasize how important she is to our organization, but we’ll settle for a big THANK YOU BRI!!!!
We wanted to recognize our community partner the US Coast Guard, and specifically their Rescue Swimmer unit that uses our facilities to train. Coast Guard personnel are always quick to volunteer assistance and we are so grateful for our partnership with our local USCG members. Semper Paratus!
