Weed spraying

​Annual Broadleaf Weed Spraying
Council contractors will commence Broadleaf Weed Spraying in some parks, open spaces and ovals from Monday 20 September. This timeframe allows for working with changes in weather. The herbicide to be used for small parks and open spaces will be Javelin or Spearhead. Casper will be used on Kingsford Smith Oval, Bob Campbell Oval, Burns Bay and Pottery Green. Monument will be used at Blackman Park (B3 and B4).

Notification signs will be put out at the major entrances to the parks at least one week before spraying. The time of spray will be updated immediately prior to the pesticide application and remain in place until the park is reopened for public use later that day. Please follow on-site signage and do not use the area while spraying is in progress – the signage will be updated with the time for re-entry that day

We are aware that our open spaces are important places to exercise during the current pandemic and are doing our best to minimise the disruption while this annual process is carried out (including spraying at night where possible).
