City of Toledo Mowing

The City of Toledo’s seasonal workers are cutting the grass at our parks, on our boulevards and our triangles as well as City properties, and expressway ramps.  For the first time, our sister divisions (Sewers and Streets, Bridges, and Harbor) will be assisting for the next few weeks to provide cutting as frequently as possible to maintain our parks and our neighborhoods. 

“The City’s complement of permanent and seasonal workers cut 146 parks, slightly more than 400 boulevards, public right-of-way and our municipal cemeteries.  The initial rapid grass growth that is traditionally experienced at this time of year presents a challenge but Parks and Recreation staff is working quickly to keep our City looking as manicured as possible,” said Lisa Ward, Commissioner of Parks, Recreation, and Forestry.

“I would like to thank those residents that take care of our boulevards and triangles, and would encourage neighborhood group or business to adopt a park, a boulevard, or a triangle. Your volunteer efforts are important to the beautification of our community”, said Paula Hicks-Hudson, Mayor.

If you are interested in learning more about our Adopt-A-Park program, which can also be used for those interested in adopting a boulevard or triangle, please view our website at /services/public-service/parks,-recreation-forestry/adopt-a-park/.

We would like to remind all residents that grass over eight (8) inches is a nuisance violation. If you have a complaint concerning grass that is more than 8 inches high at a residential property, please call 419-936-2020, having the exact street address of the property as well as if it is vacant or occupied will help speed the reporting process.
