The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced on Monday that it will create smoke-free areas in outdoor settings within state parks and historic sites where large numbers of people congregate, including around playgrounds and pools.
Under the new policy, smoke-free areas will be created around all playgrounds and swimming pools, as well as other zones specifically designated as no-smoking areas.
