COVID-19 Risk Level for Multnomah County: High Risk

Smoke & Tobacco Free Parks

On February 18, 2015, Portland City Council approved the expansion of the existing smoke and tobacco-free parks policy across the entire parks system.

Starting July 1, 2015, all City parks, natural areas, community centers, trails, golf courses, recreation areas, and all other sites where PP&R park rules apply will be smoke and tobacco free.
