Ban on alcohol in Van Eps park moves forward

Posted: Updated:

The Sioux Falls Parks Board has unanimously approved an alcohol ban at Van Eps Park in Sioux Falls.

That does not mean a ban is in effect, though. The Sioux Falls city council still has to approve the ban.

Drinking at the park has become a hot button issue this year. In just June and July, Sioux Falls police fielded more than 150 complaint calls about activity in the park. In all of 2013, police received only five calls from the park.

The council will hear a first reading of the bill on September 2, and a second reading on September 9. If the council approves the ban, it would take effect October 3.
