VC Parks and Rec Announces Tobacco-Free Policy

October 21, 2013

People who visit City Park, along with all other Valley City Parks and Recreations facilities, can no longer smoke after a no-smoking policy went into effect earlier this month.

Valley City Parks and Recreation’s board approved a policy on Oct. 2 that prohibits the use of any tobacco products in most of their recreational facilities, both outdoor and enclosed areas, according to VCPR Director Tyler Jacobson.
The board wants to create and sustain a recreation environment that supports a clear tobacco-free norm and helps protect the health of our youth, Jacobson said.
The new tobacco-free requirement, effective immediately, covers all facilities at which VCPR-sponsored activities occur, with the exception of Tourist Park Campground and Bjornson Park Public Golf Course. This includes playgrounds, athletic fields, restrooms, spectator areas, concession areas and parking lots, Jacobson said.
