Sir Winston Churchill Square is now off-limits to smokers.
By a 7-6 vote Tuesday, city council passed a bylaw to ban smoking on the outdoor space in the heart of downtown Edmonton.
People caught smoking on the square could be fined $250.
Back in October, when the issue was before a council committee, Coun. Michael Oshry asked administration for more information about banning smoking at all city-owned outdoor facilities.
Any further smoking bans will also have to be debated by city council.
