Welcome to Thendara Park

  Welcome to the Thendara Park Homeowners Association web page. Thendara Park is a residential cShippey Parkommunity of a little over 300 homes located West of Baldwin Road and East of Sashabaw Road.

  We are a community that is committed to providing a safe and friendly environment for all the families in Thendara Park.  Our mission is to become more connected with you!   If you live in our neighborhood and would like to be informed of upcoming events and newsletters by email, then please send an email to [email protected] and we will add your name to the list.


The Fall weather will be upon us before we know it!.  That means it's time to have the Thendara Park Chili Cook Off.  Do you think you have the best chili recipe out there?  Now is your time to find out.  Bring your already made chili, preferably in a crockpot, to Shippey Park on Saturday, September 24th at 4:30pm. When you register, your chili will get a number assigned to it.  Park goers will taste test the chili's and cast their votes for their favorite numbered chili.  Taste testing will occur from 5pm to 7pm.  We will have hot chocolate and a bonfire will be going.


Speaking of Fall weather, we have scheduled the Thendara Park Halloween Party at Shippey Park.  We will all meet up at Shippey Park on October 15th.  There are two opportunites for the kids to enjoy.  For the younger kids, we will have Friendly Trick or Treat stations for them to visit.  Trick and Treat Stations will begin at 3 pm to 5pm.  We are asking families to come out and do a themed station.  Children from the neighborhood will trick or treat at your station and take pictures with you. For the older kids we will have a Haunted Walk.  The Haunted walk will go from 6pm to 8pm.  Kids will be able to trek through the spooky walk.  Sign up links: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e48aeaf2ca0fe3-trickortreating1


It's never too early to start planning for the holidays, right?  The big guy will be coming to Shippey Park again on December 11, 2022.  Times to pick are on the sign up genius link below.  If you would like your children to have a personalized visit with Santa this year, please go to the following link:



Hello neighbors!

Our volunteer, Steve, has contacted Allied Construction to see if we could get a quote on just paving two major roads which is Algonquin and Michigamme. Steve presented a proposal from Allied at our Annual Meeting at Shippey Park on June 4th.  They quoted $244,035.00 for Algonquin and $483,025.00 for Michigamme.  Neighbors asked that Steve contact Allied to see how much it would be to do the whole subdivsion.  Once he gets this quote we will post all updates.

All updates and meetings will be provided through all of communication channels.  Our Website: www.thendarapark.com, Facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/thendarapark, and our Thendara Park email list.  We do provide a newsletter three times a year as well.  If you hear of a neighbor that does not have access to any of these communications please forward this email, print it out and provide them a copy.  Or have them contact us to be included on our communcation lists. You can email at this address [email protected]

Thank you for your attention to our roads and we appreciate your involvement in this project!

It is our goal to have all of the homeowners switch over to Community Disposal in the next few months.  By making this switch, we will be able to significantly reduce the number of garbage trucks going through our subdivision while eliminating having garbage out on several different days within the subdivision.  Please share this information with your neighbors!
