Regents Park is a residential suburb of Logan City, immediately south-west of Browns Plains and 22 km south of central Brisbane. Access from Brisbane is by Beaudesert Road and Mount Lindesay Highway.
The suburb was detached from Heritage Park, which had previously been part of Browns Plains. Regents Park was the name given by a real-estate developer. It was approved by Logan Council in 1986 and formally approved by the Place Names Committee in 1991.
Regents Park has three schools, all primary: a Catholic school (1982), Yugambir State (1986) and Regents Park State (1994). The suburb is diagonally bisected by an extensive linear park along a tributary of Scrubby Creek. It has walking trails and several sports grounds. There is a small shopping centre near the Regents Park school and the Grand Plaza drive-in centre is in Browns Plains, just beyond the north border.
Detached houses amount to 99.9% of all dwellings (2006). Over half were under purchase compared with an average of 32.2% for Australia. The median age of residents was 30 years, compared with 37 for Australia. House payments and school-age children are foremost in many families' minds. Regents Park's census population was 9631 (2006).
