I think instead of a smoking ban maybe assign designated smoking area would be more appropriate. I understand that it is a park and children play in parks. But there is a lot of adults that smoke that takes advantages of the great park system also that we have here in Waupaca. Yes smoking while in or around playground equipment or while watching a baseball game in the bleachers is very disrespectful, I am a smoker and I enjoy watching baseball games and out of respect I get up and walk to the parking lot to have a cigarette and I don’t throw my butts on the ground. If the parks would have a designated smoking area with a proper cigarette butt disposal container that would be a big benefit.
They can’t keep drugs out of the park how are they expecting to keep cigarettes out? Just being honest. It’s a shame.
Lets worry about cigarette butts meanwhile there is a massive heroine epidemic up there
I think it’s a great idea! I hate it when people are smoking where children are!
It’s a good idea but I’m more worried about the multiple drug deals I see when I take my kid to the park.
Wow, I don’t smoke (unless drunk!), I don’t have children, I pay ridiculous taxes for people that can’t afford their own kids, and im a home owner/tax payer. …if I want to light a legal cigarette in an open area that I currently pay state tax for, I’m going to do it regardless who oposes. If our dollars are to be spent on outdoor activities for all to enjoy, then let’s start by banning burning fossil fuels and making mandatory recycling programs. …if we are killing the planet everyday then let the smokers who want to kill themselves do it! (Sorry) 😉
Smoking really? What about needles and other things that are very dangerous that is going on in our parks and I agree otherwise
The whole littering problem is getting very sad. No pride anymore.
Dogs and geese that’s a natural act smoking is not !Peterson
Just another way to get revenie6
