Faux Urban Beach Coming To Westminster Pier Park

City officials over in New Westminster are close to finalizing plans to develop an urban beach along the riverbanks of Westminster Pier Park. Before all you suburbanites get excited about frolicking in the sun and subsequent cool off sessions by dipping into the Fraser River, there will actually be no water access due to safety concerns. Such installations have taken place across the globe in cities like Paris, Berlin, Manchester, and Toronto. Beach goers could be lounging riverside as early as this summer.
