A key feature of The Reserve is its accessibility to the local community, with its expansive education and meeting space available to meet the needs of Lions members.
An auditorium and spaces to support meetings and conferences within The Reserve will support an expansion of our community education and school curriculum programs, drawing upon experience gained by studying best-practice community outreach programs operating both within Australia and overseas.
Our partner, Multicultural Australia, an organisation who work towards making refugees, migrants and others feel welcome in the Queensland community will be based within the facility.
The Lions and Multicultural Australia have researched industry-leading programs at North Melbourne Football Club and GWS GIANTS and will use community spaces at The Reserve to develop national elite programs to support social inclusion and migrant settlement in a uniquely Queensland environment.
Use of the meeting rooms, training facilities, auditorium and a digital media studio will enhance the capability of Multicultural Australia to settle new migrants and refugees
Community facilities within The Reserve will be used daily from early morning to late in the evening. There will also be capacity to host cultural festivals and events activating all the spaces in the precinct. A shared reception area will include a new Brisbane Lions membership and merchandise shop and a café to provide a vibrant and culturally inclusive meeting place for the community.
