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; developed 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 here.
