Carneys Point, a township of just over 8,000 people in southwestern New Jersey, has joined the list of municipalities banning smoking in parks and recreation areas.

The Township Committee passed the ordinance on March 5, with signage set to be produced and installed in the near future. The ban covers public parks, playfields, ball fields and other areas used for outdoor and recreational activities, according to NJ.com. It also includes areas adjacent to Carneys Point Recreation Complex and Dunns Park, including driveways and parking lots.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
