The City of Cheney has four parks with playground equipment with children of all ages and is also home to a Veteran’s Memorial Park. Other parks within the City limits are at Cheney Elementary School (6th and Main), St. Paul’s Lutheran School (6th & Lincoln), and St. Paul’s Pre-School (6th and Adams).

June 14, 2018- Visiting your local playground or recreational field will soon be a more enjoyable experience without cigarette butts littering the ground or the smell of tobacco smoke in the air. Young Lungs at Play! is an initiative promoting tobacco-free and smoke-free public parks and playgrounds for young people. 


Young Lungs at Play! aims to eliminate children's exposure to secondhand smoke and vapors produced by electronic smoking devices at local public parks, playgrounds and playing fields by educating community service organizations, municipalities, school districts and county government agencies. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment promotes the Young Lungs at Play! initiative throughout Kansas communities to coordinate tobacco-free parks and playgrounds. The initiative also provides no-cost weather-resistant Young Lungs at Play! signs to be posted in those recreation areas. 


Vinita 4H Club member, Cash Young presented facts regarding tobacco use and second hand smoke to the Cheney City Council on June 14, 2018. Young stated, "1,500 Kansas kids under the age of 18 start smoking every year. Second hand smoke causes 41,000 deaths per year in the U.S."  Outdoor tobacco use has an environment impact as cigarette butts are one of the most littered items in the world and tobacco waste is costly to clean up and can poison our waterways, animals and people. 


The Cheney City Council was receptive to Young's presentation and adopted Ordinance 908 prohibiting Tobacoo-use in outdoor recreational areas owned, leased and operated by the City of Cheney.
