The Antwerp and Planckendael zoos are preparing to ban cigarettes from their premises in the next few weeks. In Antwerp zoo, smoking will only be authorised in 6 distinct zones from mid-July. It will be authorised in 8 zones in Planckendael from August. The Gazet van Antwerpen and Het Nieusblad reported on this story on Saturday.
The parks promise the smoking zones will be pleasant, and they will not fine those who do not respect the rules. “We are convinced people will stick to them”, Antwerp zoo said.
