Here is what Vancouver's parks & beaches looked like over the weekend (PHOTOS & VIDEOS)

Large groups are still not permitted, and "less faces, open spaces" is still the way locals should approach socializing.

While the weather wasn't great every day over the long weekend in Vancouver, Victoria Day offered ideal conditions for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy the city's beaches and parks. 

With that being said, this weekend's photos and videos posted by locals show many people practicing safe physical distancing, but there were still some instances where they weren't.

Over Mother's Day weekend, the weather was markedly hotter, with a whopping 17 records weather records smashed B.C.-wide. Of course, the sizzling daily highs lured Vancouverites out to local beaches in droves over that weekend. There is signage directing beach-goers to maintain a safe, two-metre physical distance from one another, but a number of photos taken at beaches over Mother's Day weekend had some people questioning if the rule is being followed. 

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has stated that British Columbians can start to expand their social bubbles. However, she asks residents to give pause - to expand their bubbles slowly and thoughtfully. In other words, large groups are still not permitted, and "less faces, open spaces" is still the way locals should approach socializing. 

Have a look at some photos taken at English Bay, Kitsilano Beach, Pacific Spirit Park and Creekside Park over the weekend.
