Following suit of some other B.C. cities, the city of New Westminster has designated few parks to allow for outdoor drinking.

With Spring weather warming up, and restrictions still in place, there are limited activities the public can safely do. One of the most popular activities though is visiting a local park for a picnic, and being able to have a drink is definitely a plus.

The city council of New West has passed the motion to approve a park drinking pilot program for 2021. The city is just awaiting for the bylaw to be drafted.

The pilot was originally approved for 6 parks, but the city recently added Queen’s Park to the list, bringing the total to 7. You can find a lit of all parks below.
