About the park

Riverdale Park is 10 hectares and borders the banks of the Logan River. It was once part of the Armstrong Family's 100 year old grazing property.

Riverdale Park offers an ideal place for some exercise or fitness with bikeways and a fitness circuit with river views. The park has a floating gazebo over the small lagoon, which is a great place for weddings and a large gazebo designed for big groups which is on the hill. There are both electric and gas barbecue facilities as well as play equipment for children. Riverdale Park has a great off leash area, it accommodates for all of the family.

Gates close at 7pm and open at 6am.

Weddings and functions

Set out over a small lagoon is a floating gazebo. This area creates an intimate area for a ceremony, with ample space on the bank for your guests. Riverdale Park is a large, open park and features a second spacious gazebo on the hill.

Parkour Circuit

Logan City's first parkour circuit is located at Meadowbrook's Riverdale Park. The circuit provides an alternative method of keeping fit and also has a multitude of learning and rehabilitation benefits. Included in the circuit is customised equipment such as a spider cage, gibbon swing, pyramid climber and precision balls. Each piece of the circuit has its own benefit and has the potential to reach beyond the realm of the parkour discipline. Other potential uses of the circuit include the opportunity for it to be used as a training device for personal trainers and boot camp organisers as well as professional instruction for rehabilitation purposes or physical or intellectual development.

The intent of the circuit is to encourage residents, regardless of fitness level and age, to exercise at a level and a pace that is comfortable. The more agile members of the community will have the opportunity to jump and swing from some of the apparatus while other will be able to work on their strength, flexibility and general fitness.
