The State Government has further eased some restrictions as part of its next step in the roadmap to a COVID-safe recovery and Council is currently working to ensure signage at its parks and reserves are updated with the latest restriction advice.

In Logan’s 942 parks, a maximum of 30 people can now gather in a group and people from different households must continue to stay 1.5 metres apart.

Organisers are required to follow a COVID Safe Event Checklist.

Playgrounds and other park facilities including barbecues, outdoor exercise equipment, skate bowls, pump tracks, basketball courts and water play areas can all be used and Logan’s 47 dog off-leash areas are all open.

Toilet amenities will open as per usual timetables.

Social distancing rules still apply.

The overnight-stay parks - Hugh Muntz Park at Beenleigh and Tully Memorial Park at Jimboomba - are now open.

Council is once again processing park event applications.

Approvals will be given subject to applicants following the recommended guidelines as suggested for any public gatherings set by Queensland Health.

Events attracting fewer than 500 people must follow a COVID Safe Event Checklist. Events with more than 500 people must have an approved COVID Safe Event Plan.

Logan City Council will not take any responsibility for loss of funds if bookings are cancelled as a result of the advice received from the Federal and State Governments and Queensland Health relating to the pandemic.

The Park Volunteers program (BushCare, TrailCare, ParkCare) working bees are active with operational guidelines in place to ensure compliance with Queensland Health restrictions.

The Free Trees Program runs from September to June each year.

Council is reviewing the latest COVID-19 advice and is planning suitable locations and dates for free trees events to re-commence in September 2020.

Further updates will be provided as they become available.
