Facilities

The Logan West Community Centre is located at 2 Wineglass Drive and has a hall with a capacity of 410 people (conference style) and 300 people (banquet style). It began with the relocation of a house from Jacaranda Avenue Woodridge in October 1982. The house had been used as the headquarters of the Logan and Albert Library Board and then the Burragah Aboriginal Centre. A new community centre was built in 1988. The rotunda and water gardens are suitable for weddings and photography sessions. The wineglass water tower was constructed in 1984.

 

The Park Ridge Ambulance Station was officially opened in May 1982 and was located under the wineglass water tower. It employed three officers and had two ambulance vehicles. The Calam Lions Club donated an ambulance vehicle to the service. A temporary fire station was also located here between 1983 and 1986 when a permanent station known as Logan West was built in Orr Court. The Browns Plains police station was built in 1988 at Orr Court. It was a twenty-four-hour station with twelve officers and five detectives at that time. A shop front police office was opened in Grand Plaza in August 2000 and, in June 2002, a $750,000 refurbishment of the police station included the provision of a Juvenile Aid Bureau, a secure holding cell, electronic interview room and finger printing facilities.

 

Profile

A small, geographically constrained suburb in the Logan Shire, Hillcrest is bounded by the interstate rail line and the Mt Lindesay highway, leaving very little room for further expansion. Developed mostly in the early 1980s, the majority of properties are three-bedroom brick and tile homes favoured by families.  First home buyers have recently moved into the area to snap up affordable homes and prices have seen solid growth over the past year.

There are no schools or retail facilities in the suburb itself and residents usually do their groceries in nearby Regents Park. Buyers with children will also be driving them across the highway for an education in four primary and one high school in nearby suburbs. While Hillcrest residents have excellent access to nearby Brisbane City via the highway, there is little public transport and a car is a necessity. The athletics park and water park in Regents Park is a local source of entertainment as well as the Greenbank RSL.
