The Alberta government rescinded the liquor ban in provincial parks to allow responsible adults to freely enjoy a beverage of their choicein their registered campsite during the 2019 May long weekend.
Rules and regulations around campground quiet hours, excessive noise and appropriate behavior continue to be in place. See the News Release for details.
The Alberta government is making it easier to get a liquor license for special events in our parks and later this summer will expand opportunities for adults to enjoy a glass of wine or a beer in select day use area picnic sites. See the News Release for details.
Even though the vast majority of Albertans who enjoy our parks do so responsibly, we will make sure we have enforcement in place so those few who might take things too far get dealt with, and everyone can have a great time enjoying nature. See the News Release for details.
