Parks Department News 

  
Pest Control:
The fall season brings a lot of pests into the City of Yorkton, namely the skunk. At this time of the year, skunks are looking for winter homes and sometimes the backyard is a great place for this. You can minimize skunk activity in your backyard by keeping it clean and tidy. Skunks like to burrow under buildings such as garages and sheds, so keep those areas well maintained and close up any holes. Keep clutter to a minimum and your encounter with skunks will be lessened.

On occasion, skunks will venture into the yard and take up residence there. If this happens, contact the Parks Dept. office at 786-1754. Upon receiving a call, the department will do a site inspection and look for unsightly areas that may harbor skunks. If the area is considered unsightly, a clean-up order will be issued to the property owner, and the owner will be responsible for any costs associated with removal of the skunk. If the area is clean and the skunk is still present, a contracted pest control officer will be contacted to do the removal. The Parks Dept. does not do removals of skunks - the work is contracted out. If skunk activity continues on the same property, the owner is responsible for the removal. The City of Yorkton will look after the removal of the initial skunk complaint; subsequent activity will be the responsibility of the owner. If you would like further clarification on the skunk policy, please feel free to contact the parks office at 786-1754.

Trout Fishing:
Trout fishing is open at Jaycee Beach and residents are encouraged to throw a line in the water. Sightings of fish that are about 1 to 14 inches long have been reported to the office, but there have been no reported catches. The department is offering a special prize to the first person to verify a catch at Jaycee Beach. Preferred fishing locations are from the south side of Jaycee Beach. Fishing is ongoing until freeze-up, a fishing license is not required, and there is no limit on how many you can catch.

Trails:
Fall time is a great time to do some leisure walking on the many trails within the City of Yorkton. The Ravine has a great trail system, there are trails in and around Jaycee Beach and the Kinsmen arena, and there are also trails at Logan Green. Take the family out and experience the great fall weather and wonderful sights and sounds of the outdoors.
