Goodyear introduces smoke-free parks

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (June 29, 2009) All parks in the city of Goodyear will become smoke-free environments beginning July 1.

 

By making parks smoke-free, the city will provide people of all ages with healthier, more pleasant environments for recreation and relaxation. The city also expects to see a reduction in litter once cigarette and tobacco use is no longer permitted. This, in turn, is likely to result in a small cost savings, since clean up and sanitation services will also be reduced.

 

Designated areas for smokers will be offered in parking lot areas.

 

The smoke-free policy has proved very successful at the Goodyear Ballpark, where the non-smoking policy has been in effect since the facility opened earlier this year.
