Pilot Project: Responsible Drinking in City Parks

In order to foster further opportunities for social connections outdoors while complying with provincial health guidelines, a pilot project to allow responsible alcohol consumption in designated areas of Vedder and Crossing Parks between 12 pm – 9 pm from August 18 – October 31, 2020 was initiated. Feedback was collected from the community regarding the pilot, in order to understand initial perceptions and to hear about park user experiences.

Community Feedback

Three surveys were released to the public. The surveys were available at a pop-up booth in Vedder Park and were advertised on social media, the City’s e-newsletter, and on the radio. In total for all three surveys, the City received 733 responses.

The results of these surveys were presented to Council for information on January 19, 2021. Read the full Community Engagement Summary Report here
