A ‘Dry Zone Area’ is an area where the consumption or possession of alcohol is prohibited.
Dry Zones are public areas which have been declared alcohol-free in order to reduce alcohol related, public, anti-social behaviour as well as increase the sense of safety in the community.
There are currently a number of areas in the City of Marion which have been designated as Dry Zones, these locations are:
