You Can Get Boozy In 22 Vancouver Parks All Summer Long As Of Next Week

Perfect for the beating the summer heat. 🌞

If you're looking for a way to beat the heat in B.C. this month, parks in Vancouver are now offering a boozy alternative to staying cool with water.

The City of Vancouver is starting a pilot project that allows the use of alcohol in certain parts of 22 of Vancouver's most popular parks, beginning on July 12 and ending on October 11.

The full list of parks participating in the project is as follows:

  • Collingwood Park
  • David Lam Park
  • Fraser River Park
  • Granville Park
  • Harbour Green Park
  • John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park
  • Kitsilano Beach Park / Hadden Park
  • Langara Park
  • Locarno Beach Park
  • Maple Grove Park
  • Memorial South Park
  • Memorial West Park

  • Pandora Park
  • Queen Elizabeth Park
  • Quilchena Park

The City of Vancouver has a website for the pilot project that shows you exactly where you can and cannot drink while hanging out in the park, with certain areas — like playgrounds — blocked off.

Created to allow more people to interact outside and avoid high-risk gatherings indoors, the City is reminding people to drink responsibly, be respectful of other park-goers and clean up after themselves if they do decide to participate in some outdoor boozing.
