Thomson park is named after the Hon. Dugald Thomson (1848 -1922), the first Federal Member for North Sydney (1901-1910). He was a Free Trader and supported the railway line being extended from St Leonards to Milsons Point. The land was originally part of William Gore’s land grant of 150 acres from the present day St Leonards to Artarmon Railway Station. The land was acquired by the Council in 1925. The sportsground and children’s playground were developed in 1928.

The fenced playground features a basket swing, wide embankment slide, flying fox, spinner, talk tubes and climbing structure. There are a variety of seating opportunities. Access is limited due to existing topography.
