(KSL News) The West Valley City Council has voted to keep smoking out of all city-owned recreational areas and parks.

The ban passed last night and includes areas like bleachers, baseball diamonds and soccer fields, but it does not include parking lots.

The Deseret Morning News reports the council agreed to that exception to keep from discriminating against residents who smoke regularly.

The new law is effective today and carries a $25 fine.
