Smoking banned in West Des Moines Parks

Smoking banned in West Des Moines Parks


It is now illegal to light up in West Des Moines parks.

The West Des Moines City Council was considering a plan to ban the use of cigarettes, chewing tobacco and e-cigs in the city’s 29 parks. The council passed the final reading Monday night.

Violating the ordinance could cost you $100.

City officials say the ban is about promoting healthy lifestyles, especially for children.

Signs about the new ordinance will soon be posted in all West Des Moines parks.
