If you are looking for a park to enjoy some day drinking at in Vancouver there will soon be 22 options.
The Vancouver Park Board announced that they are allowing residents to drink in specific designated areas of certain parks between 11am – 9pm. This includes 22 areas out of the city’s 230 parks.
However, drinking in Vancouver parks is still not permitted until the B.C. government finalizes the changes with liquor laws.
The changes have been approved but are not in effect yet. Once finalized (soon), the city will move forward with launching the drinking alcohol in Vancouver parks program this summer.
The Vancouver Park Board took to Twitter to share the announcement.
This evening, the Park Board enacted the by-law to allow staff to launch Alcohol in Parks Pilot as soon as Province amends the Liquor Control and Licensing Act. Remember, drinking alcohol in parks is not permitted until the pilot launches, but keep checking back here for updates! pic.twitter.com/xLq0g2bAv3
