alcohol in parks

As a pilot project in effect through April 2023, adults may drink alcohol safely and responsibly in designated areas at seven outdoor public places in Port Moody. 

Permitted spaces 

Under the Responsible Consumption of Liquor in Public Places Bylaw Number 3375, adults may drink alcohol between 11am and dusk at the locations listed below within the permitted space shown on each map:

  • Rocky Point Park, 2800 block Murray Street (view map)
  • Old Orchard Park, 630 Alderside Road (view map)
  • Pioneer Memorial Park, 275 Knowle Street (view map)

Prohibited spaces 

Drinking is prohibited within 10 metres of a playground or spray park (with the exception of the picnic shelter area at Old Orchard Park), and within the Labyrinth Healing Garden at Pioneer Memorial Park.

Be a good neighbour 

If you choose to drink alcohol in the permitted spaces, respect your fellow park users by managing your consumption, behaving responsibly, and disposing of waste or recycling in the appropriate manner. Whenever possible, pack it in and pack it out – take your waste or recycling home with you to keep our public places clean and safe for everyone. 

We remind all residents and visitors that you must follow the rules and regulations set out in B.C.’s Liquor Control and Licensing Act
