Congratulations to the Guilderland Town Board for voting unanimously Tuesday night to make all town-owned parks and open spaces tobacco-free! The new law prohibits the use of all tobacco products and electronic smoking devices in the parks at any time. Soon, all park visitors, both human and canine, will be able to breathe easier as they enjoy walking, playing, swimming, cross-country skiing, picnicking and all the other activities the town parks support.

Go here to read the detailed provisions of new law.
