Forest Park Closure for Weed Removal
DATE: Thursday, April 6th through the morning of Friday, April 7th, 2017
The City of Ottawa will close Forest Park on Thursday, April 6th to reduce weeds. The park will be closed from 7 a.m. April 6th through 7 a.m. April 7th to ensure public safety while the park is being sprayed and to allow any residual chemicals to dry. We have had a lot of complaints about dandelions and other weeds in the park and want to do what we can to keep the park an inviting place for activities. In the case of inclement weather on April 6, the backup closing date is Saturday, April 15th. Questions about the work or closure can be addressed to the public works department by calling (785) 229-3630.
