"Absolute nightmare"

I've lived here for two years now and hated every minute of it. The houses are built so close together you can touch your neighbors home, you can hear everything that goes on in the next houses and the neighbours can hear what you do. The area is mostly young families, and the location is great for kids -not so much if you enjoy peace and quiet. Noise seems to travel well around here and most of the homes are built cheap with paper thin walls. There is the constant sound of kids screaming, everyone seems to have a dog that barks day and night, airconditioning units built next to neighbouring windows.

From one end of my home i hear my neighbours scream and swear at their kids non stop, the other I can hear a man who talks to his dog all day. From my bedrokm i can hear the man next door snore all night. I havent slept well in 2 years, there is no down time, no quiet time, I find it very stressful here.

There are speed traps and islands built everywhere making it a pain to drive and limits street parking. I quite often have to park 3 blocks from home as the front of my house has no parking.

The greenspaces are nice and the council puts a lot of effort into keeping the place looking well. There is an outdoor gym, walking tracks and parks. I feel 100% safe walking around at night and the kids play freely in the streets. its the housing density that lets it down. Homes advertised as "family home" are more like unit complex or apartment.

There is no public transport, internet is provided by few companies and very expensive, limited mobile reception.
I am with optus and I can't use my phone in my house or certain streets in Logan Reserve. They are developing land in surrounding suburbs so there is always roadworks and gravel/dirt roads, has damaged my car and slows commute to work.

There are plans being approved to build shops, a retirement village, a nursing home and more high density housing in 2018 onwards. So the nice roads that are free of traffic lights and intersections wont stay that way for long, and the population will only increase.

This place is great if you have kids, immune to noise and are a very heavy sleeper. Also a flood prone area with only 2 roads in and out.

"home sweet home."

Logan Reserve is incredible. Been here 4 weeks now, still smiling! This suburb is Quiet, Clean, neighbours are great, they wave and say g'day but keep to themselves. Phone reception is horrible, and many internet providers dont service 4133 (logan reserve). if internet is important to u, the only provider for 4133 is "club telco". took me 4 weeks to get connected to internet. Logan Reserve has islands throughout the streets, they are a pain in the arse but they keep you driving at 30km which keeps the noise down for all residents. The houses are beautiful and quite new, backyards are perfect size for kids to run around. there are two brand new parks with swings, a football post, basketball court and an off lease dog park. If you have young kids this is the perfect place for you.. There are no teens here no graffiti. The local shops are on chambers flat rd marsden, full of graffiti and teens, but away from logan reserve. GREAT SUBURB :) I am happy here.
Pros
  • Quiet
