Smoke/Tobacco Free Parks

The District realizes that the issue of smoking and/or tobacco use within the workplace and public facilities has been of growing national concern. The District believes smoking/tobacco use in the proximity of youth and adults engaging in or watching recreational activities whether indoors or outside on District owned or operated facilities is detrimental to their health and can be offensive to those at such locations.

Therefore, in the best interest of employees, program participants, guests and visitors of the District, and to create a healthy environment in which to work and recreate, smoking and/or tobacco use of any kind will not be allowed on any District property or any District vehicle.

The District also reserves the right to enact more restrictive ordinances when in accordance with local, state, or federal law.
