Active Logan Participation Study

In November 2015, Council's Sport and Recreation Planning team initiated a demand study to understand participation rates and barriers to participation in sport, recreation and physical activity in the City of Logan. This demand study is known as the Active Logan Participation Study.

Overall, Council received 979 responses to the study which reports important information about:

  • Logan residents' activity levels, including their participation in organised sport or informal activities like weekend bike rides
  • Logan residents' views about what would support them to be more active

These findings allow Council to:

  • Measure and compare Logan's physical activity rates against the rest of Queensland and Australia
  • Further develop and finalise the Active Logan Strategy 2016

Council has created an Executive Summary of the Active Logan Participation Study. To view the findings, please download the Executive Summary below:

In addition, Council has created a set of fact sheets and infographics to share the more detailed findings of the study. Council encourages residents and interested parties to view and share the findings by clicking on the links below.
