The Centennial Parklands annual broadleaf and annual weed spraying program is planned to commence from the 12 of August until the 12 of September to control bindii and other broad-leaf weeds which are prevalent in lawn areas of the Parklands.
The program will continue for four weeks, weather permitting.
Notification signage will be installed 24 hours before treatment at key entry points of designated locations.
The aim of the program is to improve the quality of playing fields and parkland open space for use by our visitors by reducing herbaceous weeds.
The majority of the weed spray activity will be delivered during the night to avoid public interaction using the Australian Government-approved Destiny and Spearhead herbicides (see below for Material Safety Data Sheets).
Diluted applications of these pesticides are not harmful to wildlife or domestic animals. The Centennial Parklands Pesticide Use Notification Plan, a statutory requirement, outlines the Parklands' approach for their safe use.Also available for download are the Material Safety Data Sheets for each of the herbicides being used during this program:
