Smoke Free Zones Expanded In State Parks
Expanded outdoor smoke-free areas will be in effect within state parks and historic sites for the peak summer season.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says State Parks has expanded upon its smoke-free areas at playgrounds and swimming pools to now include other zones.
Those include specific swimming beaches and picnic shelters, athletic facilities, boardwalks, public gardens and within 50 feet of buildings.
In addition, all state parks in New York City are designated smoke-free parks.
Signs will be posted in the no-smoking areas.
The full list is available on the State Parks’ website.
