Dubuque Adds Five More Pesticide-Free Parks

The City of Dubuque Leisure Services Department has designated five more parks as pesticide-free, bringing Dubuque’s total to 15 pesticide-free parks. No chemicals are used to manage the landscape in the entire footprint of these parks. The new pesticide-free parks are Washington Park, Jackson Park, Granger Creek Nature Trail, Grant Park, and the Pet Park. New signs have been installed in each of these parks showing their designation as pesticide-free parks. No chemicals are used to manage the landscape in the entire footprint of the pesticide-free parks. Instead, staff create maintenance-friendly landscapes that reduce the need for weed management and employ mechanical techniques such as mulching, mowing, string trimming or hand-weeding to manage weeds.
