Yesterday, the Indianapolis City Council voted to amend the city’s smoking ban to include city- and county-owned and operated parks.
The measure passed by a vote of 18-6. It encompasses almost anything that could be considered a public park including recreational fields, tennis courts, swimming pools, trails, nature perseveres, and amphitheaters. Any “park” that is owned or operated by the city of Indianapolis or Marion County is included.
The notable exception is that smoking will remain allowed on city- and county-owned golf courses and driving ranges.
In addition to smoking, vaping is also covered by the ban.
