Pass a City-wide smoking ban in Seattle parks
This petition made change with 1,020 supporters!
As residents and visitors of Seattle and frequent users of parks we want to express strong support for making our public parks smoke-free.
Parks everywhere are places that people come for relaxation, recreation and entertainment – places where we expect to be able to enjoy the outdoors. And for those of us who enjoy spending time in Seattle's parks, clean air and a healthy environment are of the utmost importance.
Second-hand smoke – even in open-air environments – is a serious public health issue, and discarded cigarette butts tossed on the ground diminish the beauty of our parks, pose a risk to dogs and toddlers if ingested, and harm the environment around us.
Nearly 1,000 municipalities across the country have made their city parks smoke-free – and we urge you to include every Seattle park among them.
Thank you for your consideration.
