The City of Lethbridge is partnering with the University of Lethbridge to create a pilot program of naturalization for grass growth in our city’s parks. There are three spaces in the city that have been chosen for the program, including Redwood Park, 28th Street North and Mt. Blakiston Road West Green Strips. The three sites were stripped of the turf and a new natural seed mix was planted in July. Naturalization is practiced in many cities.
The Lethbridge pilot project was recommended through the Fiscal and Operational Performance Review at Lethbridge City Council.
