The warning comes after the Board received numerous complaints about drinking on the beach in South Boston. The complaints revolved around beachgoers having alcohol delivered, or taking to-go cocktails to the beach. Both are illegal on DCR beaches.
City Councilor Ed Flynn, who represents South Boston as part of District 2, said the city's beaches needed to be preserved as a place for all Bostonians.
"We're trying to get the word out to young people that do like to go to the beaches that... these are beaches that are open to everybody, including young families...and we expect people to be a good neighbor, to have respect for others," he said.
He said families at the beach and neighbors shouldn't have to deal with "litter, fights, quality of life issues, [or] public urination."
