Tobacco Free Parks

InformationComments Off on Tobacco Free Parks

On Friday, May 19, a group of community members joined ASAC for a “Flag the Park” event at Daniels Park in an effort to raise awareness about tobacco waste in parks. The group flagged over 300 signs of waste in a small area around the playground and splash pad. Beyond the negative impact on the park’s appearance, this waste also reflects some potential health risks to park attendees, especially children. Anyone that would like to get involved in advocating for tobacco free parks, or would like more information, may contact prevention@asac.us.
