Hello Fellow Residents -

As I sit pondering the question: “What makes Thornbury Township such a great place to live? “, it occurs to me that there are many contributing factors. I believe some of those aspects include the open space, well planned residential neighborhoods, and an excellent School District. But most importantly, it is you, the residents. You contribute in many ways that are integral to making this such an excellent place to reside. We are perhaps the proudest of the youth of our community that have strived to carry on the tradition of volunteerism that is so well role modeled by the adults in our community. We celebrate the contributions of our Junior Supervisors who attend monthly meetings to share their High School experiences. We have the good fortune of having young township residents express interest in furthering the good of the community.

Further examples of the commitment our young people have made can been seen in several of our parks. Recently there have been a number of Eagle Scout projects completed to further enhance our wonderful parks. If you have not seen the hard work of these young men and their fellow scouts, please take the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Projects completed in the past year include a new exercise area at Thornbury Park, a Bocci Ball Court and new paths at Palmer Park as well as a fence around the spring house on Glen Mills Road.  Upcoming projects include Benches at the Springhouse, a new landscape and path around the Veterans Monument and a new walking trail in Thornbury Park.

We are very grateful for the dedicated residents that enhance the quality of life in Thornbury Township. If you have an idea or suggestion to improve any of our facilities, please contact the township and we will work to make it happen. Have a great 2018.
