Have Your Say on Five Sport and Recreation Parks

The future of five sport and recreation parks in the city will be determined by Logan residents during a three-week consultation process starting today (Jan 31).

A Masterplan has been developed for each of the five sites, which are: Lowe Oval, Underwood; Cronulla Park Slacks Creek; Rosia Road Park, Park Ridge; Waterford West District Sports Park, Waterford and Dauth Park Precinct, Beenleigh.

Logan City Lifestyle and Customer Services Committee Chair, Cr Steve Swenson said each Masterplan will provide a long term vision about how the parks should be developed over the next 10 - to 20 years.

“We know residents value their parks as a place for recreation, sport and relaxation which in turn contributes to the health and well-being of our community,” Cr Swenson said.

“That is why we want to hear their views about what they would like to see happen in these parks in the future so they remain a vibrant area of greenspace for all to enjoy.

“These Masterplans provide a long term vision for the development of our dynamic city and will determine what work needs to be done to conserve and revitalise our parks to ensure they remain a refuge and recreation hub now and into the future.

“The proposed master plans are to be delivered over the long term and will be subject to available funding”

The strategy came about as part of the annual budget process, where funding was set aside to identify Masterplan opportunities for the five sites.

Council engaged consultants to undertake the master planning process, and met with key stakeholders.

A three week community consultation will start on January 31 and close on February 25 and residents are invited can have their say in a number of ways:
