The City of Trail is committed to healthy living and caring for our environment. Park users are asked to note that smoking is prohibited in any City park pursuant to the City's Smoking Control Bylaw No. 2821, 2016.
Smoke free parks and outdoor spaces contribute
to a healthy and safe environment.
The bylaw took effect on January 9, 2017. Currently, no additional bylaw staffing resources will be allocated to this bylaw but where enforcement is required a minimum fine of $100 will be in effect.
Why Smoke Free Parks?
- Smoke free parks and outdoor spaces contribute to a healthy and safe environment.
- Smoking produces associated litter and cleanup costs and toxins released by discarded smoking materials can seep into soil and water, affecting plant and animal life.
- Improperly extinguished and discarded cigarette butts can cause fires.
- Reduced exposure to second-hand smoke in public spaces will present fewer health impacts to non-smokers and to persons with existing medical conditions.
- Smoking restrictions may also increase the motivation for smokers to quit.
According to Interior Health, there is no safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke and tobacco is the number one cause of death and disease in our society, causing almost 6,000 deaths each year.
