Pesticide-free place: No EPA-registered pesticides are used in the normal maintenance of the park or recreation area. Special exemptions are given for limited IPM (Integrated Pest Management) based use of an herbicide to remove a noxious weed where this is the only feasible recommended method according to King County Best Management Practices, or in the case of an insecticide used to remove dangerous insects (wasps, hornets) as long as adequate notification or signage is used to warn the public.

Pesticide-reduced place: Children’s play areas and lawns are pesticide free. In outlying areas of the site: flower beds, fence lines, natural areas and playing fields, grounds managers use their own IPM (Integrated Pest Management) policy to determine pest control needs and minimize use of pesticides.
