As summer nears its end, so is the City of Vancouver’s pilot program allowing people to drink alcohol on a selection of beaches.
Drinking alcohol at beaches isn’t typically allowed but on June 1, the city implemented a three-month pilot in designated zones at seven Vancouver beaches: Jericho, Spanish Banks, Locarno, Second Beach, Kitsilano, John Hendry/Trout Lake, and New Brighton.
Its last day is Sept. 4, although the city may bring the initiative back at a later date.
The pilot was a “temporary initiative to test responsible consumption of alcohol at suitable locations in the city,” the Vancouver Park Board described in a statement.
