History

Logan Central was gazetted as a place name in August 1986 and marked the administrative Centre of Logan City. It encompasses the Council Administration Centre and Library, the Logan Gardens, Logan Central Community Centre and Logan Art Gallery. The boundaries of Logan Central have recently been extended to Defiance Road and Albert Street to the north, and Kingston Road to the east, including the business and shopping precinct along Wembley Road. The boundary runs along Ellen Street to Mayes Avenue, then south along the railway line to the bowling club on Jacaranda Avenue and along Ashton Street. The western boundary is formed by Bardon Road and the western side of the Woodridge State High School grounds.

Logan Gardens is an important part of the city centre. The gardens were developed in the early 1980s, alongside Civic Centre Park and Bilgers Park. In 1987, 15.5 hectares was procured from the Queensland Housing Commission for the gardens. Improvements to the gardens include landscaping, car parking, a children's playground and pathways. Logan Gardens hosted the Olympic Torch Relay's lighting of the cauldron in 2000.

Planning for an entertainment centre in Logan Central began in 2000, with initial joint funding from the state government and Logan City Council set at $4 million. The project received an additional $2 million from Arts Queensland in early 2001, which allowed for improvements in the quality of design and fit out with seating for over 1,100 people, lighting, sound and workshop areas. Construction began in December 2001 and the Logan Entertainment Centre opened on 26 July 2002.
