Home: Welcome


Since 1921, Thornden Park has been the jewel of the city’s east side. With its forested and open spaces, playground and ballfields, outdoor amphitheatre and stunning rose garden, Thornden Park is a place for people of all ages to gather, play and enjoy the outdoors.  

 The Thornden Park Association was founded in 1983 to advocate for, restore, and revitalize Thornden Park, a seventy-six acre historic landscape situated within the complex and diverse University Neighborhood in Syracuse, New York.

Join the Thornden Park Association to help support our mission of maintaining the park and providing community events. The annual dues of $20.00 help sustain our activities.

In the past couple of years, we advocated for our park during the somewhat contentious UNSACC negotiations, hosted 2 summer movie viewings, and produced our annual Chili fest and Aquathon. We also support a free, twice weekly and year-round exercise class and the summer day camps. During 2023 we start on the process of restoring the Pinetum and replanting the Lily Pond gardens, addressing the parking situation in the park, and developing a plan to increase traffic and pedestrian safety.

Please fill out the form and use the PayPal button to pay your dues. Checks can also be mailed to our PO Box at the bottom of the page. 

TPA appreciates your support and are grateful that you value this beautiful historical park as much as we do!

Thanks for submitting!
