Public Parks

Public Parks are reducing pesticide use.

Everybody’s health needs are different, which is why cities are trying to become healthier for everyone and pesticide-free parks are part of an overall healthy community and good living.

Many park services throughout Iowa are taking the lead in Iowa and supporting a healthy and inclusive environment.  Additionally, the Iowa DNR manages all mowed areas in our State Parks without pesticides.
