Mowing program within the City of Saint John includes over 2,250 acres of public green space

The City of Saint John manages and maintains 2,220 acres of natural green space and 30 acres of community parks for citizens and visitors to enjoy. We are fortunate to be park rich in Saint John. 

The City’s summer mowing program includes public areas, grass medians and some highway interchanges. This seasoncertain areas of the program have been modified to account for changes in staff resources and budget. 

Many hands make for lighter work, and we want to recognize and thank those who have helped. Our partners with the Province have been mowing sections of highway interchanges when possible, and in some neighbourhoods residents have extended their help too. Anyone interested in mowing public areas in their neighbourhood is reminded to keep their safety top of mind.

The City continues to address any concerns around sightlines at intersections. Please report these areas by contacting our Customer Service Centre at 658-4455 or by email at
