BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The City of Buffalo’s parks will now be smoke-free, following a unanimous vote by Buffalo’s Common Council Tuesday.
The ordinance bans the use of any form of tobacco in Buffalo’s public parks, including e-cigarettes. Smoking will be allowed, but only in certain designated areas.
The measure includes the Frederick Law Olmstead park system. It still needs the approval of mayor Byron Brown in order to pass.
