Delta council this week gave final approval for a pilot project allowing alcoholic consumption at Diefenbaker Park, Memorial Park and North Delta Community Park.
The designated areas within each park will be clearly marked on signage strategically placed at each location.
The hours that people can drink booze in any of the permitted spaces will be from 11 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week.
The program will run from June 1 to Sept. 30.
During council’s discussion on Monday, questions were once again raised regarding how the new rules will be enforced and whether bylaw staff will collect information on infractions for council to consider following the end of the period.
City manager Sean McGill noted additional staff will be available to visit the sites and the program could be adjusted accordingly.
Mayor George Harvie stressed it’s a pilot program and he recommended members of council also check out all the sites to see if they have any concerns.
