Shrub beds located in high profile areas such as City Level Parks, District Parks, recreation centres and attractions, and Business Improvement Areas. Some of these areas are also planted with annual flowers.
Shrub beds located in roadways, parks and neighbourhoods.
We are transitioning from the expectation that all parks are to be highly manicured into a city that embraces our natural environment. Dandelions are a part of our natural backdrop and are an early food source for wildlife and pollinators. Only high profile areas will be maintained to the manicured level of weed-free. Herbicides are applied to sports fields only when weed populations impact playability or player safety.
During the summer months, May to October, litter will be removed from garbage cans located in parks and trails twice per week.
During the winter months, November to April, litter is picked up once per week.
Trails are swept at the beginning of spring to remove any gravel, sand or debris. During the spring/summer, they are swept periodically if there is too much debris or sand.
Note: sweeping usually begins at 6:30am
