The Centennial Parklands annual broadleaf and annual weed spraying program has commenced from 28 July 2022 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 program aims 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.
This year, the works have been severely impacted by weather so some area won't be covered due to flooding.
If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
