The city of Paris is to outlaw smoking in a total of 52 parks and gardens in the French capital. The ban, which comes into effect on 8 June, was announced on Friday to mark World No Tobacco Day.

Paris city council made six parks and gardens no smoking zones in July 2018 and the latest announcement extends to ban to another 46.

The measure is aimed at “reducing the number of smokers in these parks and cigarette butts thrown on the ground”, explained the directive issued by city authorities.
