Gas BBQ's are allowed on City Beaches:
- Gas grills are allowed on City beaches - BUT if the lifeguards or rangers deems the grill to be unsafe or too large; the BBQ will need to be removed.
- Charcoal barbecues will no longer be allowed on our City beaches. This is in large part due to safety and environmental concerns related to people burying coals in the sand after a barbecue on the beach.
