Currently, 11 Idaho cities have banned smoking from parks all together. On Tuesday, the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Commission will discuss the smoking policy in city parks. At this time they will discuss if smoking needs to be banned entirely from parks.

According to, the meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. in the City Council chambers, 305 Third Ave. East.
