Hinkler Green Park

Parks & Walks

The community award-winning Hinkler Green is located right in the heart of the Thornhill area, towards the eastern fringe of Southampton, and has been a hub for leisure, play and events in Thornhill for many years. The northern boundary of the green is a dual cycle-walkway with houses and walk-up blocks beyond, and the other edges are bounded by the loop of Hinkler Road and Ellwood Avenue.

The 3.4 hectare area features something for everyone; a central active youth zone, a quieter tranquil zone with new circular walkway, a heritage zone and tree and shrub areas.

The walkways follow the direction of ‘greenways’ linking Thornhill Park to Dumbletons Copse (north-south) and Kanes Hill to Weston Common (east-west).
