Logan City Council is funding the project which will make the Beenleigh park a potential venue for international competitions.

The design includes international standard steel ramps and a concrete surface to promote smoother riding.

This comes after the council hosted a workshop which included Logan's BMX freestyle 2017 world champion Logan Martin, Cycling Australia technical director Wade Bootes, Clint Millar from Colony BMX and local BMX enthusiasts Ross Lavender and Nathan Philps.

The current half pipe, which is part of the park's heritage will be retained and refurbished.

Logan City Council became a partner to the feasibility study on a potential south-east Queensland 2032 Olympic Games bid.

BMX freestyle will debut in the Olympic Games at Tokyo next year.

Reconstruction of the Doug Larsen park is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

The existing BMX and skate park will close on May 21.
