A pathway, bridge and underpass have been built, allowing residents in the My Home and River estates to avoid crossing Anzac Avenue to access retail areas.

Safety cameras, lighting and a viewing platform overlooking the Logan River have also been installed under the division four local improvement program.

Cr John Raven said the community had asked for better connectivity, including to the Logan River.

"The River Link absolutely delivers on every level," Cr Raven said.

Cr Laurie Koranski said river link helped showcase the natural beauty and history of the area.

"Residents and visitors can now stroll along the pathway as they take in wonderful views of the river, explore our historic buildings, enjoy the family playground on the green and then shop and dine in the Logan Village retail precinct," she said.

"This is another important step towards our vision to develop Logan Village into a must-see riverside destination for artisan experiences and extraordinary lifestyle."

The river link is located near other council funded projects, including the village green playground and the Logan Village to Yarrabilba rail trail.
