Thornton Reserve

In This Section

Our beaches, harbourside pools, parks and reserves, playgrounds, fitness stations and basketball courts are open.

Practice good personal hygiene (BYO hand sanitiser and towel for workouts). Stay at home if you're unwell. Please meet social distancing requirements at all times.

The reserve can be accessed from Beresford Road. There are stairs down towards the playground and park seating. There is also a large slippery slide built into the hillside that is fun for kids.
