Municipality of Bayham

Community Centres | Parks & Green Spaces

The Municipality of Bayham has many fantastic community parks and greenspaces to explore providing opportunities for all ages to be active.

All Municipal Parks and Green spaces are Smoke-free

It is now illegal to smoke within 20 metres of any children’s playground or sports fields, including spectator areas.

A children’s playground is:

  • An area primarily used for children’s recreation and equipped with children’s play equipment, such as:
    • slides  
    • swings
    • climbing apparatuses
    • splash pads
    • wading pools, or
    • sandboxes.

Sports fields and spectator areas apply to spaces:

  • owned by the province, a municipality, colleges and universities,
  • used primarily for sports, such as soccer, football, basketball, beach volleyball or skateboarding (with the exception of golf),
  • open to the public whether or not a fee is charged to enter.

 

If you have questions or require clarification on the smoke-free law, please call Elgin St. Thomas Public Health at 519-631-9900 and ask to speak with a Tobacco Enforcement Officer.
