Dear Sports Association Representative,
Due to the ongoing hot and dry weather, city parks have reached a point in which the danger of fire is critically high. Many of the fires in BC have apparently been started by discarded cigarettes.
Smoking is prohibited in all Surrey Parks including all sportfields, open spaces, paths, driveways and parking lots and is subject to a $200 fine per occurrence (Park By-law #13480).
Your co-operation in this matter is compulsory. By-law Enforcement will be patrolling City Parks for compliance. If individuals are ticketed for smoking, who can be linked to a team and league; facility use permits may be immediately revoked, in order to better protect public property.
