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.

City of Dubuque park staff worked with community members to develop, which involved managing nine city parks totaling 23 acres without the use of weed killers.
