Greenspace Maintenance

City worker cutting grass

The City of Brandon Parks Department maintains City owned greenspace in public areas. The grass in these areas is cut from April to September on six-route cycle. This cycle is followed throughout these months assuming the climate supports a regular grass growth. The maintained greenspace includes City Parks, greenspace around walking and cycling paths, and center boulevards of streets. Flowers are also planted in these areas by the Parks staff as well as community volunteers.
