Watson Reserve will be closed for a short period on Monday, 6 September between 10.00am and 1.00pm while our Parks and Environment Team undertake weed treatment.
Safety signs will be in use advising residents to avoid the area when treatment is occurring.
Regular weed treatments play a vital part in maintaining our Shire’s natural reserves, pristine grassed ovals, parks and gardens. And not only that, controlling weeds:
- Reduces fuel loads to mitigate bushfire threats
- Protects our roads and paths which can be severely damaged by invasive weeds
- Keeps drains clear of roots
- Promotes turf growth
- Facilitates natural biodiversity.
