Grass-cutting and City green space

Creating and protecting Kingston's green spaces – both wild and groomed – is a key City priority

The City operates and maintains:

The City takes great pride in preserving our well-loved and active parks, trails and green spaces for the enjoyment of Kingstonians and visitors.


Cutting Kingston's grass

Cutting the grass in the City's groomed areas is determined by:  the planned use for the green space; the availability of grass-cutting resources (see below); and the weather.  

For example: during the playing season – and weather-permitting – irrigated sports fields are mowed twice a week and unirrigated sports fields once a week.

Please note that many parks have planned naturalized areas intentionally left to grow wild and keep to pathways to enjoy non-wild walks – reducing the risk of coming into contact with poison ivy and ticks.
