Grass cutting in parks

Brisbane City Council maintains 60,498 hectares of grass across Brisbane, including grass cutting in more than 2160 parks.

Council programs its grass cutting schedule on a seasonal basis. The frequency of service increases in summer when grass grows faster; however, this can be disrupted by significant rainfall or periods of extended dry weather. In these events, services are rescheduled as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.

In most cases, the frequency of service ranges from monthly in winter to fortnightly in summer. High profile parks which attract higher rates of visitors and sports fields are serviced weekly in the peak of summer.

Due to recent heavy rainfall across Brisbane in March 2021, delays are expected to Council’s grass cutting schedule as our contractors await for grounds to dry. Servicing will resume as soon as it is safe to do so and when conditions allow.

If you notice a park in your local area that is overgrown, it's most likely due to recent or current weather conditions.

You can report overgrown grass in a Council park using our Report it: Grass cutting and weed removal online form.
