The Town of Parry Sound Council adopted Bylaw #2012-6087, being a by-law to regulate smoking in outdoor public places. The By-law was implemented to protect children and non-smokers from second-hand smoke and to reduce the amount of litter caused by disposing of cigarette butts. As of June 1, 2013, smoking is prohibited in, and within 9 metres, of any municipally owned or leased park, playground, beach, and recreational field. Smoking is permitted only in a posted designated smoking area. Please note that Kinsmen Park is located in the Township of McDougall; therefore is not included in By-law 2012-6087.
For more information, contact the By-law Enforcement Department at 705 746-2413 or email@example.com
