Smoking will be banned in more places within New York state parks this summer.

The governor's office announced Friday that the state is expanding the number of smoke-free areas at state parks, pools and historic sites, including many of New York's popular beaches.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says residents should be able to enjoy the outdoors "free of pollution from secondhand smoke."

The new rules vary from park to park, so the state has posted a list online of places where smoking is banned.
