In regards to the smoking issue: They have taken the right to smoke away from all establishments, so where is there left to smoke but out in the fresh air of the park where the smoke generally goes straight up and does not bother anyone. Besides, if the smoke bothers you, you don't have to go near a person who is smoking. That is the beauty of being out in the fresh air of a park.
I never thought of it before, but it seems like that is the only place left where you can smoke if you want to smoke. (I don't smoke.)
