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 couldn't choose between our excellent Aquatics staff members to highlight for Employee of the Month, so we decided to honor all three! Lead Lifeguards Ethan McCarley and Susan Principe, and Aquatics Recreation Coordinator Peter von Payens have all been instrumental in supporting the U.S. Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers practicing at the facility and are working hard to help us reopen the AAC in March. The combined institutional knowledge and ability of this group has been indispensable in keeping our facility running safely, we are so grateful for their hard work and excited to continue utilizing their talents as we look to reopen!
THANK YOU ETHAN, SUSAN, and PETER!!
