Lockyer Valley Parks and Reserves

Lockyer Valley Regional council has over 45 parks and reserves scattered across the region. There is an extensive range of parks and reserves to suit the community.

Head outdoors and explore the region’s very own natural playground. Parks are a place of adventure and discovery, peace and tranquillity, recreation and play.

Book a park

Council welcomes the community to use Lockyer Valley parks and reserves for special gatherings such as weddings, parties and events.

All coordinated activities or events requiring the use of Council controlled parks are required to submit an Application for Park Booking form. If you wish to book the Laidley Recreation Reserve you are required to submit the Laidley Recreation Reserve Grounds Booking Request form.

This process is in place to make necessary maintenance preparations and avoid overuse of facilities. However, submitting a park booking does not give the applicant exclusive use of the park, it is public open space, and as such must be able to be used by all of the community. A first come, first served basis will apply. When booking a park the applicant agrees:

  • That the park will not be damaged
  • The area will be left in a clean and tidy condition
  • The appropriate Public Liability Insurance will be held by the applicant for the event

For more information about booking Lockyer Valley parks and reserves please contact Council on 1300 005 872. 

Maintenance

Lockyer Valley parks and reserves are maintained by Council on a regular basis.  However, if a park needs attention please contact Council on 1300 005 872.

Qld Moto Park

In 2008, there were more than 230,000 trail bike riders in South East Queensland. Many riders, due to lack of regulated sites and locations, were riding in national parks and not only damaging the bush but also the reputation of riders across the state.

Council of Mayors (SEQ) recognised the need for a dedicated trail bike facility as a way to protect the environment and to reduce trail bike related deaths and injuries. Queensland Moto Park, located at Wyaralong, 30 kilometres from Beaudesert, was the result.

Opened to the public in December 2011, it's the first facility of its kind in Australia. More than 60,000 people from across the country and around the world have visited the park since it opened.

The Queensland Moto Park offers trail bike enthusiasts a legal, family-friendly riding option that is suitable for beginner's right through to advanced riders.
