Community Facilities Inventory i 1 Introduction
This document provides an inventory of existing community facilities within Logan City
Council as of December 2010. It has been developed as part of the Community Facilities
Strategy and provides background and supportive information to that document. Only
Council owned facilities are included in this document.
1.1
Scope
The range of community facilities covered by this document and the Community Facilities
Strategy have been categorised for easy reference. These categories are:
1. Community Facilities
a. Community Centres
b. Community Spaces
c. Youth Centres
2. Arts and Cultural Facilities
a. Art Galleries
b. Libraries
c. Museums
d. Performing Arts Spaces
3. Sporting Centres
a. Indoor Sports Centres
b. Aquatic Centres
c. Sporting Facilities by Sector
1.2
Level of Service
Although the physical number of facilities has been documented in the Community Facilities
Strategy, further analysis has been undertaken to determine the level of service each facility
actually provides to the community. This analysis has been based on how each facility meets
four different criteria, which include:
 Location/access;
 Site area;
 Building area; and
 Design.
This assessment results in each facility being rated between 0.0 and 1.0, with 1.0 indicating
that the facility adequately meets the needs of the community. For example, if a community
centre suffered from a poor location, size and design, it may be assessed as rating 0.5 and is
therefore only acting as half a community centre.

Meakin Park
General
Description:
Meakin Park is host to a wide variety of sports
and consists of several sporting grounds. The
Meakin Park Junior Sporting Association
oversees the club house facility on the western
side of Meakin Road) that is shared by such
groups as Logan City Softball, Logan City
Hockey and Logan City Darts.
The fields have 8 soft ball diamonds in very
good condition as well as fencing around the 2
skinned diamonds. There is field lighting
consisting of 11 lighting towers with various
numbers of lights on each. There are 2 dug
outs each on five of the fields. There were no
markings or goal posts on the fields signifying
the use by Logan City Hockey Club.
Their club house has a very large function
room with kitchen/canteen facilities, a small
gaming area and a large undercover veranda
overlooking the fields. This veranda would be
the only shade provided to spectators and
players. Toilet facilities include male and
female toilets as well as a disabled access
unisex toilet. The fields and clubhouse are in
use 7 days per week 12 months per year. Even
though it was in very good condition and
seemed roomy, the club has outgrown this
with over 900 players registered.
Designated car parking is inadequate
especially for the manoeuvring of buses who
often relay players to the fields. Cars often
have to park on the very busy road which is a
concern to the club as drivers often speed
down this road. It has resulted in at least one
accident recently. The club would like to
convert one of their grassed areas into a
parking area.
The Logan City Kings utilise the soccer
grounds across the road from Meakin Park
Junior Sports Association, behind the Strikers
Community Facilities Inventory Page 116 Club House.
There is one main field and 3 mini fields
available here, all in good condition. All have
goal posts and there are 2 dug outs on the
main field with a sin bin as well as 2 dug outs
on the secondary field.
A small 2 storey club house used for
administration, provides two change rooms
(both have 1 toilet and 2 showers), toilet
facilities downstairs (1 male plus urinal, 2
female plus 1 unisex disabled) plus 1 male and
1 female toilet upstairs as well as a kitchenette
and a canteen. There is a small undercover
area at the front of this providing some shade.
Storage facilities are at the rear of the building.
The club also uses the fields on the other side
of the creek (still Meakin Park). Ideally, they
would like to build some sort of access
through the bushland to enable them to access
both sites. Originally this site on Soccer Drive
was the clubs main grounds. It was shared
with Logan Sharks Baseball team until the
Sharks disbanded. The grounds are well
maintained but may be under utilised.
Designated parking is available at both sites as
well as in the grounds of the Strikers Club.

Issues faced by
current club/s:
Grounds are shared by the Springwood Suns
Cricket Club and the Logan City Rugby
Union Club which creates discord between
the clubs regarding usage times and
management of the fields. Seasons for both
sports conflict at several times during the
year.
Opportunities:
For future consideration.
Management Model:
Council leased facility
Recommendations:

Relocation of the Logan City Rugby
Union Club to Meakin Park. This should
enable the growth of the cricket club.

Support growth and development of

Limitations:

Issues faced by
current club:

Lighting is not adequate for the club to
conduct more than one night game (two
diamonds on the field) and needs
upgrading to enable them to use both
diamonds.

A constant issue for the club is
vandalism. The club has bushland
surrounding three sides of it with
walking trails and within access of the
local high school. This encourages the
local youth to regularly deface the mural
at the end of the building with
obscenities and also maliciously damage
the area. Ideally the club would like to
remove some of the vegetation to enable
spectators to watch the sport on the
perimeter of the fields. This may also
reduce these occurrences.

Limitations:

Issues faced by

Motorbikes present an issue as they race
around the running track and also down the
long jump pitch. To stop this, a metal post
and rail has been put in the middle of the run
ups to deter motor bike riders.
The club would ideally like a fence to be put
around the perimeter of the park. However,
this would spoil the park like appearance of
this facility.
An ongoing challenge is the lack of car park
space. There are designated car parks at the
front of the club house, but due to the
number of participants and spectators, they
are quickly filled. Some people do park over
at nearby Hyde Park, but if there are soccer
games in progress, this means the remaining
cars spill over into busy Vansittart Road.


The field is in poor condition as it cracks
up and makes running on the surface

adequate lighting at night time.


This facility was very well maintained and in

Limitations:

Issues faced by
current club:

Lighting is available on the main field but
to utilise the remaining fields at night,
this would have to be constructed.

Require more storage area due to the
number of clubs who use this facility.

Drainage issue with this land due to a
culvert near the main field getting
blocked and flooding the field. The club
feels a larger culvert may alleviate this
issue. Holding tank at the rear of the
building impacts the clubs income due to
the costly emptying of this. Ideally, they
would like a treatment plant of their
own. Plenty of unsealed parking

Lack of adequate car parking for cars


Fencing is rotting as it is over 20 years


No lighting at facility. Occasionally
night meets are held and competitors
stay overnight at the grounds. Club is

hoons race their cars through the car
park with disregard to speed bumps
when events are held. The club is
worried about the children being
