At its meeting on Tuesday, the Henderson Board of Commissioners approved the second reading of a proposal to ban smoking in city parks, bringing an end to park users being able to light up in those spaces.
The ban does not apply to the city’s golf course or parking lots adjacent to city parks.
The council also approved a related proposal that will allow event permit holders to decide whether their events can have designated smoking areas.
Both changes go into effect immediately.
Henderson is home to approximately 29,000 residents.
