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).

Long grass along major roadways

Report long grass and weeds along major roadways. Grass along major roadways is mowed four times per year; crews are on a cost effective, detailed schedule which they must adhere to. Cool season grasses grow more quickly in April, May and June, so grass will be longer in these months than in summer and fall.  The City sprays for dandelions and weeds on a 5-6 year cycle.
