The city could reconsider its alcohol ban at Stewart Beach as it seeks to lure more visitors to the park long considered “family friendly” but where attendance and revenue are on the decline.

Very bad move!

It would be interesting to hear how the conclusion non-consumption of alcohol may be a factor in declining attendance was arrived at. It very well may be true, but it's hard to say how that conclusion came about without knowing more. Hopefully that information will come out in the ongoing discussion on the topic.

So, the idea is to increase revenue by encouraging more people to drive their vehicles to Stewart Beach, get liquored up and drive their vehicles back home? That sounds like a great plan! 👍🏻
