Neighbours of Logan

Do you want to live in a neighbourhood where kids play together, people put your bins out if you’re away and people check in with you if they see something suspicious? Do you want to live in a neighbourhood with a sense of community?

Living in a neighbourhood that has a sense of community is linked to many benefits for residents including:

  • a feeling of belonging
  • reduced loneliness
  • improved physical and mental health
  • lower crime rates.

With benefits like these, it makes sense for us to all strengthen our neighbourhood ties.

Logan’s Biggest Picnic

For Neighbour Day 2020, we’re encouraging everyone to get together with their neighbours in a local park for Logan's Biggest Picnic. See our Parks Directory for a list of parks in your area.

Neighbour Day is held every March and is a celebration of community and reconnecting with our neighbourhood. Neighbour Day is a great opportunity to make and strengthen connections with the people who live around us, and can lead to benefits all year round!

For the first 30 events registered you'll receive a $50 gift card to contribute to your picnic.

All registered events will also receive a Neighbours of Logan pack that includes copies of:

  • our picnic invitation template (you can use this for a letterbox drop for your event)
  • Neighbours of Logan Say Hello! connection cards, including a tea bag, for anyone at your event to take home
  • our tip sheet on ways to help build community in your neighbourhood
  • the Live Well Logan program, for anyone interested in free and low cost health and wellbeing activities
  • the KRANK school holiday program, for anyone with school aged children looking to get out during the school holidays.

All registered events for Logan’s Biggest Picnic should be family-friendly. To be eligible to register for the $50 gift card, please read and agree to our terms and conditions.
