Smokers will no longer be able to light up in Chicago parks.

The Park District’s Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to ban smoking at parks and harbors.

The resolution includes any lighted substance including cigars, cigarettes, e-cigarettes, pipes and marijuana.

The District says the smoke-free parks policy will help promote healthy lifestyles, improve the local environment and save on maintenance costs.

Chicago now joins the more than 950 park districts across the country that have smoke-free parks.
