Tobacco-free Playgrounds and Parks


Springfield Presentation

Springfield is first community in Sarpy County to implement a comprehensive tobacco-free playground and park outdoor recreation policy.

 City of Springfield approved resolution 2018-32 that all city-owned recreational areas, parks, playground areas, and ball fields shall be designated as “tobacco-free” and tobacco use shall be prohibited.

 Tobacco Education and Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) congratulates the Council for their stance on creating healthy outdoor spaces for their citizens. Sarpy Coordinator, Autumn Sky Burns, presented a certificate of recognition to Springfield Mayor Bob Roseland on October 30.

"Springfield’s parks are geared towards families and children, we also work with our schools and American Legion for the use of the parks and ball fields. It was the right decision to make in keeping our parks clean and friendly," said Council member Michael Herzog.

The primary purpose of the resolution is to protect children from the potential dangers of secondhand smoke while at play in parks. The policy provides adults the opportunity to be non-tobacco using role models to youth on ball fields and playgrounds. Tobacco-free parks benefit the environment and it is through the reduction of cigarette butt litter that the health of local streams, lakes and rivers will continue to improve.

 The policy prohibits use of all forms of tobacco products, i.e., cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes, pipes, and chew/dip. Tobacco Free Parks will be clearly identified with “Tobacco-Free Park” signage.
