Long grass in a park

 
To maximize cost efficiencies, crews follow a schedule when caring for grass in our parks. Grass within a park is usually mowed once every two weeks, weather permitting. Natural areas within a park (ie. Nose Hill Park) are typically not mowed however there may be special circumstances where mowing is occasionally required (for example, as part of a weed control program).
