Local agencies work together to launch Smoke & Vape-Free Parks
Washoe County, City of Reno and City of Sparks collaborate for a healthier community

SmokeVapeFree.pngReno, Nev. Aug. 19, 2019. Washoe County and the Washoe County Health District, City of Reno and City of Sparks have worked together over the last two years on a regional effort among all jurisdictions to ensure our city and county parks are designated smoke and vape-free locations. 

Taking into consideration the health of people, pets and wildlife, environmental impacts, maintenance, clean-up costs and fire risk, residents and agencies have agreed that ensuring our parks are smoke and vape-free is in the best interest of our community.
