Landscape Services

Recreation, Parks and Open Space landscaping crews are responsible for preserving and protecting Norfolk's parks and other outdoor public areas for aesthetics, recreation, education, and conservation. Vacant city lots, parcels, and school properties are maintained within city code. The landscaping services team manages the mowing of nearly all city-owned property. Factors such as rain, holidays, and storm response can affect the schedule.

Mowing Schedules

Note that dates are subject to change due to special events, inclement weather, and storm response/cleanup.

Major parks will continue to be mowed on a weekly basis or kept usable to include Lafayette, Lakewood, Northside, Poplar Hall, Berkley, and Tarrallton.
