Camden County to begin enforcement of smokefree parks ordinance

Posted on

Camden County passed an ordinance in 2009 that bans smoking at parks and recreation areas. The ordinance has not been enforced, but is supposedly being enforced now, beginning July 18. Read a news article about renewed enforcement of the ordinance. Read a July 22 editorial highlighting the value of such an ordinance to children playing at the park. Read a news article about Gloucester County exploring a similar ban to Camden County.

Outdoor bans for beaches, parks and recreational areas continue to proliferate around the state. Visit our webpage with more information on Outdoor Smokefree Environments.
