Borough of Sugarcreek Joins Young Lungs At Play Initiative

Young Lungs At Play

Sugarcreek Borough, Venango County is proud to welcome the Rocky Grove and Reno Playgrounds to the growing list of Venango County communities/Organizations who have joined Young Lungs at Play!- an initiative to make public parks, playing fields and playgrounds tobacco-free.

Sugarcreek Borough Council invites all Venango County cities, municipalities, school districts and county government to join Sugarcreek Borough in eliminating children’s exposure to secondhand smoke at local public parks, playgrounds and playing fields by participating in Young Lungs at Play!, a no cost tobacco-free parks and playgrounds initiative that has been proven successful in other parts of Pennsylvania and the country. This initiative will help protect the environment and the health of all Venango County residents.

The initiative assists municipalities to designate parks, playgrounds and recreation fields tobacco-free. The organization(s) then provide the municipality with weather resistant Young Lungs at Play! signs that can be posted in those tobacco-free public areas.
