Our Neighborhood Association is active and inclusive, and offers many volunteer opportunities to engage with neighbors, improve Thornton Park, and have fun. Join a committee today!
We usually begin planning in May for our annual Taste of Thornton Park fundraiser that is held each October. We are always looking for help with publicity, speaking to area businesses, and helping the day of the event. Speak to TPNA President Leo Hunt if you're interested in helping us put on this fun event!
This committee led by John Moore, who was instrumental in installing the Four Rivers Fountain in 2000, maintains and cleans the fountain on E. Washington Street.
We try to meet quarterly to select the Yard of the Season, plan the annual Plant Exchange, exchange gardening tips, paint storm drains and utility boxes, and encourage conservation and Florida Friendly landscaping.
This committee is researching the history of Thornton Park and plans to showcase that history through street sign toppers, a history pamphlet, plaques, an updated website, and other events
We review OPD crime statistics, plan for the annual National Night Out, engage Block Captains, attend Neighborhood Watch trainings, and submit feedback to the City on traffic safety issues.
The TPNA Social Committee comes up with ideas for neighborhood socials and creates opportunities for you to get to know your neighbors! We have kid-friendly events, adult nights at the bar, and are open to many fun ideas for neighbors to meet!
We welcome new residents to Thornton Park with a packet of welcome information, coupons and brochures from Thornton Park District businesses, and some friendly faces to say hello!
