Mosquito control

Following a flood event, mosquito breeding can cause a risk to public health. We anticipate a potential increase in mosquito breeding in coming weeks. 

As flood waters recede, Council is ramping up efforts to survey and treat mosquitoes and larval at water-holding sites across the city. Pest management officers are working with residents in flood affected areas to minimise the risk. Council also encourages residents to take steps to prevent the risk of mosquito breeding and bites.

For more information on how you can control mosquitoes around your home, or request support, see our Mosquitoes page, or visit Queensland Health.  

Parks closures

Parks will only be closed to undertake urgent works that cannot be completed safely without closing park gates for vehicular access.

There will be works in progress in your parks over the coming weeks.  

We encourage park users to take care when visiting parks and be mindful not only of works occurring, but also areas that have not yet been cleaned up due to the recent flooding. 

Our parks team is working hard to restore our parks to pre-flood condition as quickly as possible.

Park currently closed

Logan River Parkland is now open, but the off leash dog area, playground and volley ball court are still closed until further notice.

Recovery and clean up works have commenced and these areas in the park will open once it's been made safe to enter.  

Mountain bike trails

All trails in Logan City Council parks are now open.

Some trails remain closed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service in Daisy Hill Conservation Park. For more information please contact Queensland park and Wildlife Service.

We will continue to monitor the trails for closures as required pending conditions and any possible future weather warnings.
