Play, Picnic or Ride
Logan River Parklands (Beenleigh) offers river views, a great variety of play equipment and numerous and large open areas of land. The large park is set back from the road with ample parking.
There are two playgrounds and a beach volleyball court in close proximity to the main carpark. Both playgrounds are well maintained, sheltered by material sails and and have soft fall surfaces. The larger playground features several structures that allow for climbing and swinging, a swing set with toddler swing, double see-saw and slide. The most striking piece of equipment is a large netted tunnel.
The smaller playground is more suitable for younger children. It features a smaller climbing fort and slide with tactile play equipment underneath. Recent additions include an inground trampoline and musical play structure.
A bike path travels throughout the length of the park, adjacent to the river. This path is relatively flat and regularly used by families.
Several shelters are located near the playground allowing for active supervision of children's parties or family outings. A much larger gazebo is positioned away from the view of the playground and is ideal for gatherings requiring a quieter environment. Smaller gazebos are scattered throughout, allowing for use by multiple groups of people. Most gazebos have barbeque and water facilities nearby.
A toilet block is situated atop a hill, allowing for visibility from most parts of the grounds.
Due to the popularity of the park it is advisable to arrive early if you plan to use a particular gazebo or area.
