Seasonal Activities


At Thornton Park, there are so many ways to enjoy being outside any time of year. In the snowy winter months, residents catch chilly thrills on the sledding hills. When the temperatures rise, kids and adults alike practice swinging for the fences in our batting cages, or they can take to the courts - Thornton Park offers outdoor sand volleyball, tennis and basketball. The skatepark is a popular attraction too, offering skateboarders and inline skaters a safe place to practice new moves.
