THORNDEN PARK ASSOCIATION

The Thornden Park Association was founded in 1983 to advocate for, restore and revitalize Thornden Park, a seventy-six-acre historic landscape. Over its more than 40-year history the Association has restored gardens and buildings and held countless events such as its annual Chili Bowl, Aquathon, Garden Tours, and Movie Nights. 

The board meets monthly to advance its efforts to ensure that Thornden Park offers a welcoming environment that is responsive to the needs of the community. If you are interested in volunteering or participating on the board, please get in touch.
