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.
