Logan Village Implementation Plan

The Logan Village Implementation Plan (PDF 12.33 MB) identifies and prioritises a number of place-based actions that contributes to delivering the vision for Logan Village. Following the Logan Village Forum several key initiatives and actions were endorsed by Council which informed the Logan Village Implementation Plan. The Implementation Plan has been updated to reflect projects delivered since 2018 and updates to the place-based actions for the next five-year period (2023 to 2028).

Projects in Progress

Logan Village Green Stages 2b and 3

The next phase of Logan Village Green upgrades will start in May 2024. The project includes:

  • adding new green space between the RSL Cenotaph and community centre, replacing the existing carpark. This provides more space for community recreation and memorial related events
  • the heritage courtyard will be upgraded with seating, shelter, trees and landscaping to create a gathering area
  • these works also include resolving drainage issues improving the safety and functionality of the space.

The expected completion date is July 2024.

Both stages of work are consistent with the Logan Village Green Masterplan.

Logan Village Riverfront Precinct Plan

The Logan Village Riverfront Precinct Plan (PDF 9.10 MB) creates a framework to plan, design and deliver already identified priority actions (from the Logan Village Forum, the Logan Village Implementation Plan and the Logan River Vision) in a complementary manner that builds upon the momentum of place-based actions in the Logan Village Green and its surrounds. The Precinct Plan provides an opportunity to realise ‘A shared community place where people can exercise, relax and embrace the natural and heritage significance of the Logan River’ (Logan Village Riverfront Precinct Plan: Vision Statement). Delivering public access to the Logan River will re-establish a significant heritage connection and create a unique regional scale attraction that will draw people into the area and generate economic opportunities for the wider community. The Precinct Plan was endorsed by Council in November 2023.

Completed projects

Upgrade to Logan Village Green

To enhance what is the focal point of the Logan Village community, the Logan Village Green was redeveloped in 2022 to improve:

  • drainage conditions
  • landscaping
  • lighting, and
  • signage.

This project includes:

  • a new tree lined circular path that frames a central events space
  • new park furniture
  • a new half-court basketball court
  • parking, and
  • lighting.

The $1.2 million project is a joint initiative of Council and the Federal Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

Relocate the Skate Park 

The old skate park was demolished and replaced with a purpose-built park in the southwest corner of the Village Green. The new skate park provides a high-quality experience for the riders of all ages and abilities. The new skate park also includes lights to ensure the use of this prized asset is maximised, promoting an extended activity profile in the Village Green.  

The new skate park was officially opened in November 2022 with guest attendee gold medallist Logan Martin.  

Logan Village Place to Play 

The new Logan Village Adventure Playground, located on the village green, was officially opened in May of 2021. This landmark project delivers on a community priority as identified in the Implementation Plan.  

A community inspired design process was key to the project delivery. The new playground includes a distinctive bird's nest lookout, slides, trampolines, a flying fox, totem poles with ropes and a dry creek bed flanked by timber steppers and balance beams.  

The $1.6 million project was jointly funded by Council and the Federal Government under the Building Better Regions Fund Round 3. The highly collaborative project was awarded both the Stakeholder Engagement Award and the overall project winner by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) QLD 2021. 

Logan Village Green Master Plan 

A key outcome from the Logan Village Forum was the development of a precinct master plan for the Village Green precinct, working with affected landowners, user groups, community groups and local businesses. The Logan Village Green Master Plan (PDF 10 MB) provides the framework to facilitate the upgrading, improved embellishment and/or expansions of the Village Green. The Logan Village Green Master Plan was endorsed by Council in 2020.  

Logan Village to Yarrabilba Rail Trail 

The Logan Village to Yarrabilba Rail Trail was officially opened in December 2021. The 3.5 km rail trail re uses the old Bethania to Beaudesert rail corridor and creates an active link between Logan Village and Yarrabilba. The 2.5m wide asphalt pathway extends through native bushland and is designed for walking, jogging, hiking and cycling.  

The rail trail features a watercourse crossing, flood mitigation, access-controlled bollards and custom design signage. The entry signs include repurposed ironwork from the old bandstand on the Village Green. 

The $2.6 million project is a joint initiative of Council and the State Government who contributed $2 million under the Unite and Recover grant funding program. 

My Home and the River Link 

The Logan Village River Link was opened in August of 2021. The link provides a direct connection between the residential areas south of Anzac Avenue to the Logan Village Green. The 2.5 metre wide path, bridge and underpass are improved by unique views of the river and its surrounds. The project includes new safety cameras, lighting and a viewing platform that overlooks the river.  

The $1.2 million project was funded through the Logan Village Implementation Fund to improve connectivity, to improve engagement with the Logan River and promote active forms of transport.  

Logan Village Events Strategy 

The Logan Village Events Strategy provides a framework for planning and delivering events in Logan Village. The strategy was informed by community consultation including an ideation workshop in December of 2020. 

The Logan Village Event Prospectus is the key product of this project delivered in August 2021. The prospectus sets out a series of opportunities for local businesses and organisations to partner with Council to develop their own unique event. The project was delivered with a 50% funding grant under the Building Better Regions Fund Round 3. 

Free Wi-Fi to the Logan Village Green 

Free wi-fi to the Logan Village Green was installed in July 2019 to assist in building community activities and supporting proposed events. 

Logan Village Advisory Group (December 2018) 

The Logan Village Advisory Group (LVAG) represented local residents, businesses, property owners, retailers and other key stakeholders. Between December 2018 and November 2020 the LVAG gave input and guidance to Council on the design and delivery of Logan Village Implementation Fund Projects. 

Logan Village Forum (March 2018) 

The Logan Village Forum, held on 7 March 2018, brought together the community, government, industry, business owners and property owners to talk about the economic and community potential for Logan Village. For more information and outcomes of the event, please download the Logan Village Forum information (PDF 583 KB)

Logan Village Local Plan (March 2010) 

The Logan Village Local Plan guides development in the area over the next 20 years to cater for the needs of its existing and future residents. The plan was endorsed on 30 March 2010 and has been incorporated into the Logan Planning Scheme (refer to the Logan Village Local Plan in Part 7), which now guides decision making in this area.
