Support for Smokefree Parks

Summarizing the benefits of laws & policies to make parks smokefree

Fact Sheet
Tobacco Prevention

Because the negative health effects of secondhand smoke exposure are well documented, one of the most important steps a community can take to improve the health of its residents is to create more smokefree places.

Despite enjoying the benefits of some of the strongest smokefree laws in the country, Californians still face health risks from exposure to secondhand smoke. Many California communities are increasingly interested in limiting secondhand smoke exposure in outdoor places such as parks, playgrounds, and other recreational areas.

ChangeLab Solutions developed this fact sheet to summarize the benefits of laws and policies to make parks smokefree.
