As of January 1, 2015, Albany city park visitors will be able to breathe easier when all city parks become tobacco-free. What a great way to ring in the new year!

Tobacco-free signage can’t go up until the ground thaws. . .brrrr. . .it’s too cold out there. But signs will be popping up in early spring along with the robins, greenery and tulips.  In 2015, park visitors can look forward to cleaner and greener city parks.
