Come September 1st, smokers will need to butt-out before hanging out in a Vancouver Park or on a City beach.
According to the City of Vancouver, “the new policy is part of the Park Board’s commitment to the promotion of a healthy urban environment and support for active living and wellness.”
Smoking will be prohibited in all 224 City-run parks and including all of their properties within such as playgrounds, beaches, pathways, sports fields, golf courses (pitch n’ putt), trails, the Sea Wall and parking lots (not even while inside your own car on park property).
The minimum fine for violating the new by-law will be $250. You can read a full list of frequently asked questions online.
