Thorndon Park is open to the general public at all hours. Please note, dogs are prohibited in the park at all times and the car park is locked between the hours of sunset and sunrise each day. Hire Spaces include an Amphitheatre, Rotunda and Oval Area that can be used for performances, community events, weddings, birthdays, sports days and other major events.
