About Beenleigh Town Square
Beenleigh Town Square is a key urban space that has recently been transformed from a six way roundabout into a defined community centre. The development of Beenleigh Town Square has been driven by a desire from the community to transform the physical heart of the town into a place of cultural exchange and activity.
Beenleigh Town Square is characterised by:
- a green pedestrian friendly environment creating a strong sense of community and place
- a place that is not dominated by cars with 50% less bitumen than before
- enhanced public realm that creates social interaction and promotes social inclusion
- a multi-purpose functional activity area with active edges to encourage community activities.
Beenleigh Town Square includes a civic platform, pavilion structure that may accommodate a future café and open-air market space, all of which will contribute to activating the centre and have significant economic and social benefits for the Beenleigh community. Beenleigh Town Square will contribute to Beenleigh becoming a welcoming and attractive destination for visitors, fostering Beenleigh's thriving small business community.
The funding partners of Beenleigh Town Square redevelopment are:
- Logan City Council
- Australian Government (Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development)
- Queensland Government
