Waterways & Wetlands
Logan has two iconic rivers: the Logan River and its little brother, the Albert River. Both have played critical roles in the history of, not only our city, but in the lives of generations of locals who grew up playing on their banks.
Today this expanse of waterways throughout Logan City continues to play an important component of our natural environment, recreational spaces and contributes to the character of Logan City.
