The City has designated 45 parkland sites as "Herbicide Free" areas. These green spaces represent a cross section of all parkland inventories. Officially, these sites became "Herbicide Free" in 2004 and did not receive any further herbicide applications until 2007. During this time, sites were continuously monitored with prescribed turf/horticultural enhancement activities conducted according to deficiencies.

The objective was to determine if these horticultural enhancement activities can control weed growth to an acceptable standard, thereby replacing the use of herbicides, or at least reduce the frequency of herbicide applications.

After this three-year period, vegetation management staff assessed each site to determine turf condition. Sites with low broadleaf weed infestation (i.e. did not exceed our weed control standards) and manageable noxious weed infestation remained "Herbicide Free" until the next assessment.
