Smoke-Free Parks in San Carlos?

November 14, 2008

It seems that Redwood City has always been just a step ahead of San Carlos when it comes to modernizing their parks.    For all of the great new equipment that Burton Park now has (including the water fountains,)  both Stafford Park and Stulaft Parks in Redwood City have already had this in place for several years.   And if you look at the transformation that has taken place at their centerpiece Red Morton Park — the new playgrounds, skate park, and the huge all-weather athletic fields — it's clear the Redwood City is pumping some serious cash into its parks.

Once again on the leading edge, Redwood City is now considering making all of these parks smoke-free.   Here's the press release from the City on the ordinance that they're considering:

Redwood City Smoke-Free Parks

Is this something that the City of San Carlos should consider?   Is it even a problem in our parks?   I'd be very interested to hear your opinion on this — (perhaps it could become a future poll on the site!)

    I am all for this, limiting smoking is always a positive in my book. With San Carlos (and its parks) being so kid friendly I would love to see this happen.
