Full story: San Gabriel Valley Tribune

Smoking in public parks would be banned if Alhambra council members approve a plan now being drawn up by the city's legal counsel.

They will never enforce it. They have rules already about no pets in the parks yet every weekend there are dozens of people who take their dogs to the parks that my kids play in and use it as a toilet and dont clean it up. If they can not enforce what is already in place what good is additional laws? This is just one of those feel good measures so that council memebers can say they did something....Take a trip to Alhambra Park on any Saturday and see how many people actually follow the current laws, disgusting.

There should be no smoking in or on any city owned/leased property. Such restrictions must also apply to sidewalks, cars, trucks ect.

Second and Third hand smoke harms pets and "rug rats." If you care keep your smoking outside. Thank You.
