Where can you have a bevvy in the park for your Level 3 picnic?

Local culture 06/10/2021

We are officially in stage one of the three-stage plan in the new implementation of level 3!

So what does this mean?

In step one, people are able to connect with their whānau and friends outdoors wearing masks, with no more than two households at a time with a maximum of up to 10 people.

Thanks to the words of Aunty Cindy we are able to “meet for picnics, play dates, or for a beer.”

And well we took that as an invitation to have a picnic and a cold one!

So what parks in Auckland are we able to meet for a picnic whilst enjoying a nice cold bevvy?

But first a reminder!

Alcohol has been banned from some public places in Auckland to encourage a safe and welcoming environment.

In some places the bans are in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week; in others, they are only at night time or during daylight savings.

Police officers will issue a fine for a breach of an alcohol ban. They can issue a fine:

  • Instantly (without arrest)

  • After an arrest for breaching the alcohol ban

  • By post, after the breach has occurred.

So if you are going to have a bevvy in the park be smart and play by the rules!

You can view alcohol ban locations in your area by heading to the Auckland Council website, alcohol ban areas and search your home address, the link will then provide you with a list of all the parks in your area and state what restrictions are in place.

You can also use the Geomaps option provided.
