Thornby Park was officially opened to the public on February 12, 2011.This park is an all-inclusive "Inspiration Playground" and is one of many parks operated by the Parks and Recreation Department.

The City of Deltona and Volusia County became co-owners in March 2009. The City contributed half of the $3,000,000 purchase price and Volusia County, through the Volusia Forever Program, paid the remaining cost. The City was awarded a Volusia County ECHO Grant of $393,750 to assist in the construction of the all-inclusive playground. The site is almost 40 acres of pristine wooded property including 1,000 feet of shoreline on the scenic St. John's River. This project is a valuable asset for Volusia County and the City of Deltona.
