Dog parks across the City of Logan will remain open but water will be turned off at three water play areas as Logan City Council ramps up social distancing measures.
The city’s 930 parks are still open to the public but Council strongly recommends park users comply with the latest Federal Government recommendations on social distancing and public gatherings.
Gates at parks with road access will be locked to help discourage non-compliant large gatherings.
The exception will be parks that host an essential service such as the weekly fresh food markets at Underwood Park in Priestdale.
Council also will no longer process park event applications until further notice.
All community tree planting and volunteer projects scheduled for Council parks will cease immediately until further notice.
To also comply with the latest social distances rules, Council has closed its two overnight-stay parks until further notice. They are Hugh Muntz Park at Beenleigh and Tully Memorial Park at Jimboomba.
The changes to park-use rules were made as part of preparations for the impacts of COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Council is committed to supporting Queensland Health as the lead agency responsible for responding to COVID-19.
Our top priority is protecting the health and well-being of the community, our customers and our staff.
Anyone using Logan parks must comply with social distancing rules. For details go to health alerts
The water play areas affected by the latest decision are at Logan Gardens (Logan Central), Darlington Parklands (Yarrabilba) and Flagstone Regional Recreation Park (Flagstone), which is operated in conjunction with developer PEET.
The City of Logan has more than 62 dog off-leash areas.
The six Council-run cemeteries remain open under normal hours.
