Turf Management
TurfTurf Management in Willistown 
The Township Administration is committed to our residents and to protecting our valuable ecological resources including our waterways, open space, woodlands, and wildlife. At present, both Greentree Park and the Garrett Mill Park ball fields are fertilized and treated for weeds on a minimal basis, just three times per year. The Mill Park infields are only spot-treated with herbicide, identified by a blue-green die, in the Spring. No treatments are used at Serpentine, Sugartown, or Okehocking Preserves unless there is a noxious weed issue, at which time spot mowing is conducted or spot spraying is conducted and is identified by a blue-green die. Township contracted pesticide treatments are conducted only at the Garrett Farm House at Okehocking Preserve.  

Township Parks & Recreation notifies residents in advance of such treatments through the “Notify Me” feature of our website. You can sign up for these notifications by clicking the Notify Me button  and subscribing to “Parks and Recreation” updates. Any scheduled treatment date will be posted at the parks approximately one week in advance. Also, the Township will continue to pursue natural alternatives for turf, pest, and weed management in our Township parks.
