Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Logan has engaged Tredwell Management to develop a Recreation Trails Strategy to provide a future-proofed network of trails that meet current and forecasted demand for recreation and conservation needs of natural areas.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Council’s inaugural Recreation Trails Strategy 2010 - 2020 created the overall direction for trails across Logan. Due to the city’s strong population increase and growth in popularity of trail-based recreation, a new Recreation Trails Strategy is required.

PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES

The Recreation Trails Strategy is a city-wide project that will have Council's Parks, Health Environment and Waste, Economic Development and Strategy, Road Infrastructure Planning, and Sport, Leisure and Facilities Branches working together.

The following non-motorised trail-based activities are being considered: walking, bushwalking, horseback riding, mountain biking, recreation cycling, and canoeing/kayaking.

The proposed new Recreation Trails Strategy will further support the City of Logan to be recognised as an active and healthy community, provide benefits for residents and visitors and be a vibrant visitor destination.

The project objectives are to:

  • provide a range of trail-based experiences for residents and visitors
  • maintain and improve the existing trail network
  • explore the opportunity for a mountain bike hub
  • identify additional opportunities for trails
  • protect environmental and heritage values
  • support physical activity and mental health
  • identify economic development and tourism opportunities.
