Earlier this year, the City Council voted to expand the city’s smoking ban to include city parks. The expanded ban is in effect as of Aug. 13.

Smoking will still be allowed in outdoor areas of municipal golf courses and the Will Rogers Memorial Center. The Park & Recreation Department director will be allowed to create rules to permit smoking in designated areas of parks specifically for special events.

Late last year, the city prohibited smoking in bars and bingo parlors and retail smoke shops within 300 feet of schools, universities and hospitals.
