Pesticide Reduction

 
Barb DeCaro 206-615-1660 | barbara.decaro@seattle.gov

Bradner Gardens ParkSeattle Parks and Recreation has been maintaining 14 parks without the use of any pesticides since 2001. The program is expanding to include eight more parks and about 25 more acres, for a total of 22 parks and about 50 acres.

Pesticide Management LogoPesticide-free Parks are distributed geographically throughout the city and provide citizens an opportunity to use these facilities with the knowledge that no pesticides are used. Parks and Recreation staff are using this program to help develop and test sustainable maintenance practices and design guidelines.

For more information on Parks' IPM programs see the Pesticide Management Section of our Parks Frequently Asked Questions.
