20. A New Smoking Ban Takes Effect in Des Moines Today

A new smoking ban takes effect in Des Moines today.

The City Council approved an ordinance in August barring smokers from lighting up at some parks and public areas.

The rule prohibits smoking within 25-feet of playgrounds, wading pools, enclosed park shelters, community centers and golf course club houses. It's also not allowed at city swimming pools, Gray's Lake beach, Cownie baseball and soccer parks as well as Western Gateway and Westchester parks.

Some outdoor city sponsored activities will also be smoke-free.

The city says it will post signs to identify non-smoking zones.
