Walking Path Length- For all of you who are curious about the distance of the walking paths at Thornbury Park: 

  • Front Part (runs around tennis court, tot lot and basketball court) - 2580 Feet;
  • Back Field - 2460 Feet (One Mile equals 5280 Feet)

Let’s “Pick it Up” for Safer Recreation and Cleaner Water - Pet waste is a source of many harmful microorganisms that can be transmitted from the waste to humans if it is not promptly picked up and disposed of.  This list includes E. coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Brucellosis, and roundworm parasites.  Many of these microorganisms will last months in the soil, and some up to four years, if not immediately cleaned up from lawns, along trails, in parks or preserves.  Studies have shown that dog waste is also a significant source of bacterial and nutrient contamination to streams, especially during the “first flush” from a rain storm which carries the majority of the pollution washing off of lawns and hard surfaces.  To protect your family and to be considerate of your fellow residents and other trail users, please remember to “scoop the poop” with a plastic bag and dispose of it promptly in a public trash can or your own trash receptacle (not your neighbor’s trash can or down storm drains, please). Composting or burying your pet’s waste does not destroy harmful organisms.

Electronic/Invisible Dog Leashes in Township Parks- For those who take advantage of walking their dogs in Thornbury parks, electronic/invisible leashes are not permitted in any of the Township parks or on Township property.


Thanks to the Western DelawareValleyLions Club - We would like to extend special recognition to the Western Delaware Valley Lions Club  for their many contributions to activities and events in and around ThornburyTownship. They help with such things as traffic control during the Thornbury Historical Society House tour, refreshments at the annual 4th of July Parade, road clean-up along Creek Road and financial assistance to area charities. Thank you to all the members for your much appreciated dedication and hard work.
