REDMOND, Wash. — You can’t smoke or vape in any Redmond park or trail. The new park rule went into effective March 31.

City officials said they made the rule after an extensive public outreach effort focused on addressing criminal and civil behaviors in city parks.

This is the first change the city made to its park rules in 24 years.
