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.

Feasibility study for Underwood Park Community Facility
The feasibility study for the Underwood Park Community Facility has been completed, with Council at its meeting of 26 July 2016 endorsing the feasibility study and outcome to develop a new purpose-built facility to replace the old Club Rochedale building.
The feasibility study proposes a new facility that will provide a hospitality training centre and community centre, incorporating restaurant, function and café as well as storage areas for BMX and mountain biking. The first step in this process is to demolish the former licenced club component of the building and provide improved access to the Rochedale Rovers Football Club building particularly for people with a disability.
The development of any new community facility will be subject to Council securing external funding to progress. The feasibility study contains ‘commercial and in-confidence’ information pertaining to commercial interests of individuals and organisations and will remain confidential.
Current facility projects
Council's Sport and Recreation team are currently working on supporting the delivery of the following key projects:
Yarrabilba sport and community hub
Yarrabilba’s Shaw Street Oval will soon be improved with a new sports and community hub building thanks to a project funding arrangement between Logan City Council, Lend Lease and the Queensland Government.
The project will look to construct a multipurpose building that includes change rooms, toilets, storage areas, canteen, multipurpose area and offices.
