Here are the places where you can legally drink alcohol on the North Shore

The City and District of North Vancouver and the District of West Van 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 designated public spaces where you can enjoy an adult drink outdoors.

The City of North Vancouver was the first to open spaces for public drinking, 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.
