City forbids grilling in parks, for now

The City of Lubbock's Parks and Recreation Department is temporarily banning outdoor grilling in all City parks until further notice.  Due to the extreme dry conditions and heightened fire potential, the use of all types of outdoor grilling devices is not allowed.  This ban applies to the permanent grills located in City parks as well as all portable grills. 

Section 16 of the City's Code of Ordinances allows the regulation of park activities when necessitated by reason of public health and safety.  The City's Code of Ordinances can be found on the City of Lubbock website,
