Forestdale is a subdivision of and previously part of Browns Plains. Forestdale is named as such due to the lack of tree clearance compared to surrounding suburbs, although the risk of bushfire is greater than its neighbouring suburbs. "Forest" is from the modern day English word meaning a dense growth of trees and "dale" is originated from Middle English meaning a man who lived in the valley. The suffix is a reference to Robin Hood, an archer according to medieval folk tales. Many of the streets in the suburb are named after characters from Robin Hood stories. Apart from substantial areas of reserve land, some market gardening, retail and minor pockets of farmland destined for development, Forestdale is residential in nature. Most houses are large and sit on extensive blocks of land.


Greenwood Lakes

The Greenwood Lakes wetland with high conservation values is found in Forestdale. Visitors to the park may undertake bushwalking, walk the dog, bird watching and use the picnic tables, boardwalk and viewing platform provided. A large lakes and terraced banks along Oxley Creek were created by commercial sand extraction operations in the area.

Forestdale is a family-friendly suburb in Logan with good backyards and affordable property.



A comparatively new suburban area, Forestdale is located within close proximity to other popular Logan suburbs, Boronia Heights and Hillcrest. Forestdale has a mix of newer and older homes, acreage properties - set amid bushland - with homes likely to be brick and tile or of a more contemporary design. The Boronia Park Shopping Village, the Forestdale Shopping Centre and Middle Road Village Supermarket are the local shopping areas. Residents in this area, however, generally travel to nearby Browns Plains or Park Ridge for their shopping needs and for entertainment. The Grand Plaza in Browns Plains contains a shopping centre, cinemas and a bus exchange with services to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. There is a Boronia Heights Primary School but families with older children generally send them to Park Ridge High or to private schools further afield. Edwards Park has bike tracks and an outdoor fitness circuit set in a lush creek and park area.
