Map: Here are all the parks where you can legally drink alcohol on the North Shore

North Vancouver city and district and West Van district all now have designated parks where you can enjoy an alcoholic beverage

What was once a pandemic novelty is becoming the norm on the North Shore, with all three municipalities opening up designated public areas where you can enjoy an adult beverage in the great outdoors. 

The City of North Vancouver was the first to open up spaces for public alcohol consumption, becoming the first Canadian jurisdiction outside of Quebec to do so, followed by pilot projects in the District of West Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver
