Established in 2022, A Beach For Everyone was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia by a group of local residents with the mission of ensuring our beaches and parks are a safe haven where everyone can come to enjoy nature.
Spending time in nature is linked to both cognitive benefits, improvement in mood, mental health and emotional well-being. Through education and raising awareness about the positive effects of spending more time outdoors to enjoy and hear the natural sounds, we encourage everyone to take a break, slow down and unplug from technology.
Being able to peacefully access the places we love is something we take seriously, and our organization is proud to protect and preserve these places so that everyone can enjoy themselves and reap the benefits for our health & well-being.
People using the beach should be respectful of the environment, fellow beachgoers and local residents. We all come to the beach for different reasons and it is important to be aware of the bylaws and how excessive noise due to loud, amplified music, alcohol fueled parties, and disorderly conduct can disrupt others and their experience of being in nature to enjoy nature.
While there will always be pre-planned events and deviations from this philosophy, we aim to work with decision-making bodies to improve the beach experience for all beach goers.
In Summer 2022, we will be organising and running a series of Picnic in the Park events at the Haywood Bandstand. Get out your rugs, deckchairs and picnic hampers!
Located in the centre of Alexandra Park, on Beach Avenue, this octagonal bandshell has been a focal point for evening and holiday entertainment since 1914. The Heritage Building is rarely used nowadays, so our aim is to facilitate and bring it back to life for the local community to enjoy together for a relaxing afternoon. Bring a picnic, invite a friend or neighbour and we will provide the entertainment.
Our Picnic in the Park events are free to attend, family-friendly and everyone is welcome.
We are currently in the process of becoming a registered charitable organisation and selecting our Board of Directors. For more information or to register your interest please contact us.
