District of West Vancouver plans to allow the consumption of liquor in three more parks. Last year, District Council had allowed the consumption of liquor in Millenium Park. That project was successful, says district staff.
The staff is recommending that the Council should allow it to continue.
The staff is now proposing three more park locations in West Vancouver where consumption of liquor should be allowed.
These three locations are: Ambleside Landing (the area around Ferry Building Galley), the John Lawson Park excluding the playground, and Dundarave Park, excluding the playground.
Horseshoe Bay Park is another location being considered once the construction of the renovated park is complete.
However, the staff is not recommending areas in Ambleside Park after consultation with West Vancouver Police and the bylaw department.
“The Consumption of Liquor in Public Places Bylaw supports the local restaurants and cafes by allowing patrons to bring takeout including alcoholic beverages to Millennium Park,” notes the staff report.
According to the report, West Vancouver Police didn’t receive any complaints and no violation tickets were issued in the park.
The Ambleside and Dundarave Business Improvement Association (ADBIA) has also informed the staff that they endorse the project and would support the expansion of such a project to other area parks.
