City fighting back against weeds in parks

WENATCHEE — Visitors to city parks should be able to see the playgrounds, ball fields, picnic shelters and wading pools a little better through the weeds this summer.

Four years after the city curtailed fertilizing grass and spraying weeds in most of its 13 urban parks, the program for treating grass and weeds has restarted at the urging of Mayor Frank Kuntz. Park crews will also be mowing a little more often and have replanted flower beds that have been empty for many of the last four or five years.
