Community Engagement Event: Sport in the Park at Brisbane City Botanic Gardens

The Brisbane City and Fortitude Valley Crime Prevention Units, along with PCYC, will be hosting Sport in the Park, a special event that brings together local police officers and young members of the community for a fun-filled day of sports and engagement at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens. 

Held on Saturday, 10 February 2024, Sport in the Park is a community engagement initiative aimed at fostering positive relationships between young people and law enforcement. 

The event encourages youth to join their local police officers in kicking a ball around and participating in various sports activities.

Beyond just sports, Sport in the Park offers a unique opportunity for members of the public to engage with law enforcement in a relaxed environment. Attendees can discuss any concerns they may have with the police officers present, fostering open dialogue and community trust.

Particularly for young people, this event serves as a platform for positive interactions with police, helping to break down barriers and build mutual respect.

If you’re interested in participating, feel free to come down  Saturday, between 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and enjoy some sport in the park with your local officers. Whether you’re kicking a ball around or simply engaging in conversation, it promises to be a rewarding experience for all involved.

In addition to the sporting activities, there will be crime prevention resources available onsite, as well as gazebos for shade to ensure everyone’s comfort throughout the day.
