The City has advised us that “the park at 4707 Montalban Drive NW is on schedule for some rehabilitation work this season. This work will include the treatment and removal of the Canada Thistle from the turf.” Signs are out and spraying can occur at any time now, so be sure to check the signage and, of course, avoid the park for awhile after spraying, especially with dogs and kids.
