Thorndon Park, Campbelltown

The perfect spot for a barbeque, Thorndon Park is a landscaped park with all the amenities an urban dweller needs for a relaxing weekend. A peaceful lake has shallow banks for wading while covered terraces provide shade for picnics. The landscaping complements the natural wetlands that abut the park; it's these wetlands that attract photo-savvy visitors and their cameras. You'll also find a small heritage museum open on the weekends and a giant chessboard for practicing strategy.

  • Absolutely good park every one can enjoy playing there or doing some activities How ever I feel it's bit unsafe for children because there is no thing to protect the children if they came near the water Even though it's great place to go to
  • The kids always love visiting. The playground is so much fun and going for a walk around the dam and feeding the ducks and fish is always a winner. There are also lots of facilities to cater for picnics with BBQ's and seating. Note that it is a popular park and can be busy at times
  • It's makes Mitcham reserve look unprofessionally looked after. Money well spent, the local residents don't even have to go to the city Torrens river banks, rotunda, or any park lands. Every park land in the Campbelltown area are well looked after and enjoyable to go to unlike other councils where they only look after the main ones. Well done and if I could mark 6 stars I would. I very rarely give high marks.
  • Great facilities and parking , lovely lake. Bbqs , play ground and playing fields. Plenty of shade
  • Clean park with a nice playground and walking trails next to streams of water. Kiosk has decent food and the park has BBQ's for cooking.
