Come and explore one of Redland City's newest parks
Thornlands Community Park is one of Redland City's newest parks. Situated at the entrance to the Waterline Estate in Thornlands, on the corner of Cleveland-Redland Bay Rd and Waterline Blvd, this park is easily accessible to everyone living within the Redland City area.

The park is being constructed in stages. To date, a large oval has been installed, with a paved track for bike riding, skateboarding, and the like. Within the oval, and around it, are well-maintained lawn areas which are increasingly being used by families over weekends.

Seating has been installed at regular intervals around the oval. There are two picnic shelters, one of which includes a gas BBQ, and two water bubbler points which include doggy drinking facilities.

This park is currently being upgraded with an all-abilities playground that is due to be completed on 22 May 2020 (watch this space for updates!). Following that, a water play area and exercise equipment area has been approved for development as well. The dates for these are yet to be announced.

Thornlands Community Park is well connected to surrounding areas via bike and footpaths as well as by road. One of these enters the park from the direction of Pinklands Sporting Complex to the north, and the other through Waterline Estate from Victoria Point to the south-east.

The natural bushland along these pathways provides opportunities for wild bird watching at any time of the day, and wallaby spotting in particular along the pathway towards Victoria Point in the early mornings and evenings.
