Parks and facilities manager, Rod March shares what the city is doing this fall to prepare for the winter this fall.

"This is the time of year where we transition from outdoor play to indoor play, so there is a lot of things that have to happen in the background with the shutdown procedure. Right now we are working on our vegetation control, tree pruning is ongoing but more importantly, right now some of the irrigation lines are being blown out."

The Spray Parks at Royal Heights and Padwick Parks are closed for the season as of today, September 14th.

March adds, "We're going to be doing some tree pruning, the elm ban is now lifted so we will be at that. Our mosquito control is now done for the year, we were pretty successful at that this year. the irrigation lines will be blown out, but we are going to leave some areas like Lynn Prime Park, for example, they'll be using those, doing some practices till the end of September."

"Now we're into what we call the construction phase of the parks because we don't want to interrupt the play parks programs. We will be doing some constructions at Royal Heights as well as at Kensington Greens. There will be some security fencing and stuff like that at Royal Heights, so we ask that the public respect that for your own safety."
