Parks Operation's Turfgrass Responsibilities

Open Park 2

Parks Operations maintains over 600 acres of turf in parks, boulevards, easements and roadside ditches. We also provide resources on maintaining your lawn.

In addition to mowing, Parks Operations conducts turf repair, fertilizing and noxious weed control as required to keep turfgrass throughout Grande Prairie healthy and vibrant.

When Mowing Happens

- Parks and boulevards are mowed bi-weekly
- Easements are mowed monthly
- Roadside ditches are mowed once per year


Our Crew

During the summer months, the City's mowing crew consists of two lead hands, three crew chiefs and approximately forty seasonal employees.Weedeating
