Smoke Free Parks in Atlanta | H.E.A.R.T. Coalition, Inc

Tobacco use is the most preventable cause of death in the United States. Every year, around 440,000 Americans die from tobacco use and nearly 50,000 die from exposure to secondhand smoke. Parents, coaches, and recreational leaders are role models for youth and can have a positive effect on their lifestyle choices.

Prohibiting tobacco use at our community’s parks and recreational facilities protects the health, safety, and welfare of everyone in the community.

"Petition for Tobacco Free Parks Policy in Atlanta"

In 2011, H.E.A.R.T. Coalition and Learn To Grow, Inc. members and supporters began advocating for a tobacco free parks policy in the city of Atlanta. On July 10, 2012, the Atlanta City Council will vote on an addition to the City of Atlanta Code of Ordinances, the prohibition of smoking in all city of Atlanta parks.
