Bob Dailey field and track is closed to the public from 7:00 am Wednesday, September 30 to 7:30 am Thursday, October 1 for weed control.
The City currently applies some herbicides to control dandelions and other broad leaf weeds. We apply herbicides regularly to sport fields, as they have a high use and too many broad leaf weeds can cause safety issues and threaten the health of the turf.
For other areas, we apply at a lower frequency. Parks with high weed-density will usually have a herbicide application approximately every four years.
The City takes the health and well-being of citizens and green spaces seriously, so all herbicides and pesticides are carefully chosen and applied to be the least toxic to off-target plants and animals. Furthermore, all pesticides and herbicides are fully certified by both the federal and provincial governments.
For questions or concerns, please call Echo Centre at 250-723-2181.
