    Jubilee Park will be dry Victoria Day Long Weekend again.

    At Leduc County’s May 6 council meeting, Director of Parks and Recreation Dean Ohnysty told council that for the past few years there has been an alcohol ban at Jubilee which is located on the shores of Wizard Lake near Calmar Victoria Day long weekend..

    “We’ve had tremendous success with this restriction and support from our campers,” he said.

    The ban was put in place several years ago to minimize alcohol-related issues at the park and make the popular camping weekend enjoyable for everyone.

    Council unanimously approved the decision as well as appointing several parks officers who will be at the park to enforce the ban, which takes effect from may 16-19.

    “I’m going to recommend this motion because it’s proved itself to be successful,” said Division Seven Councillor Audrey Kelto.
