Tobacco and Nicotine Free Parks
Tobacco and nicotine use in the proximity of children and adults engaging in or watching outdoor recreational activities at City owned or operated parks and recreational facilities is detrimental to their health and can be offensive to those using such facilities.
In addition to the regulations of the Iowa Smokefree Air Act, tobacco and nicotine use, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, snuff, pipes, Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), and nicotine products that are not Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for tobacco cessation, is prohibited at all times from park grounds. This includes but is not limited to any park, playground, athletic field and complex, skate park, aquatic areas, shelters or recreation facility, excluding the course of play at the Waterloo Municipal Golf Courses.
This tobacco/nicotine/ENDS policy applies to all employees, independent contractors, board members, participants in events, and the general public while on park grounds.
