In addition to reducing health risks for the community caused by second-hand smoke, smoke-free parks would reduce fire hazards and smoking-related litter, as well as helping protect wildlife exposed to toxins when they ingest discarded cigarettes. 

Other California communities with smoke-free parks include Sacramento, San Francisco, Davis, Woodland, Winters, Fresno, Modesto, Berkeley, Dublin, and 36 additional California cities.

If approved, no-smoking signs would be posted in all city parks and open space areas.
