Thorn Park

Introduction

Thorn Park (1893) boasts a late-19th century ovoid cast-iron urinal with decorative panels by Macfarlane of Glasgow, hidden in an attractive shrubbery. The Lodge, which also marks the entrance to Mutley Park, is now leased by the City Council to the Park Pharmacy Trust, which has created a medicinal garden.
