A large, shaded junior/toddler play park with a liberty disabled swing provide fun for children of all abilities.Multiple barbeques and picnic settings beckon invitingly across the shady grassed expanse. The park contains a rotunda (which is available for hire) and a pavilion.A kiosk and heritage museum are proudly operated by the Rotary Club of Morialta.Please note that dogs are not allowed in Thorndon Park as it is a recognised bird sanctuary.

We used to live across the road from this park. It's large and green and pretty and they have alot of events here (ethnic events, being in a largely Italian suburb). A great place to go with the kids or the dog on the weekend....More

We visit Thorndon Park once or twice a month. There's a terrific playground for the under 15's and tonnes of grass for ball play for the older kids. The walk around the old reservoir is fantastic with a nice mix of waterside paths and 'bush...More

Popular picnic spot. Good facilities include children's playground with great selection of equipment, shady picnic areas, barbecues, Rotary kiosk on weekends. Good for all the family to play on the equipment or walk around the lake through well maintained gardens.

Great for friends and family. Excellent playground, good for kids and baby. There are quite a few events coming time to time, worth to go and feel it.

Had a lovely time with the extended family with a picnic at the park. Lots to keep kiddies busy and big enough to find a table. It's a popular spot so getting in a bit early is a good idea.

I love visiting with my grandson. He loves the playground and the ducks. We save up food for them and they come flocking in as soon as we get there. It would benefit from a better snack bar, the one there is usually not open...More

Love going here on summer evenings for a stroll around the lake - i tend to avoid this park during the day due to the crowds - it gets very busy in school holidays and weekends but in the evening there are only a few...More

Not a huge complex but has nice walking trails around the reservoir and a couple of excellent picnic areas. One needs a vehicle to visit.
