Herbicide use closes St. Catharines park

Malcomson Eco-Park in St. Catharines will be closed today as an exterminator uses a low grade herbicide on invasive species.

City officials gave us a heads up about the closure last week, and the weather conditions today look favourable to get the work done.

The park will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. as a precaution - experts say there is very little in terms of a health risk to people or animals.
