Vancouver Park Board Pilot Project for (Legal) Drinking in Parks

Hey Vancouver! Hope you're enjoying all that summer has to offer. Whether it’s sun, sea or sand, being outdoors and around nature is good for the spirit. As an added bonus, this summer and into autumn, the Vancouver Park Board has implemented a pilot program allowing the consumption of alcohol in designated drinking sites* across 22 Vancouver parks. The program is ongoing, from July 12 to October 11, 2021 – where adult public consumption of alcohol is allowed at various pilot sites between 11am and 9pm daily.

So go on, get out there and play outside! (Ahem, remember to play safe, drink responsibly, and only leave your foot prints behind.)

We build custom branded, high-quality wooden boxes and crates. We're based out of Greenwood, British Columbia, so we choose to source our materials from nearby lumber mills. Though wood is already a great alternative to plastic, we'll always go the extra mile to keep sustainability in mind during the box-making process. All of our wine and beer crates are constructed in BC to minimize transportation emissions and to support local businesses!
