“A Town asset.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Lan given to the Town as "a haven and sanctuary". For the most part it lives up to it. The only downside is that as part of the recent makeover a children's play area has been established in one area which can be rather noisy at times. Fortunately it is in one corner, partially hidden by the Museum which does help. The rest of the Park is most enjoyable particularly as it is so handy to the centre of town with some interesting little areas and corners. Well kept with the help of local Volunteers. Long may it continue

“A true gem”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Unique and amazing yet peaceful. Park sits on a hill with the Whitby Museum at the top. We didn't visit the museum but heard it is very good with art and such.

“a relaxing get away with a book”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

A great place to hide away from the busier side of Whitby. Splendid gardens and plenty of seating. You could sit here all day unless you have a restaurant booking to get back for.

“Beautiful and Relaxing”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Mr. Panett definitely had foresight and thanks to him; Whitby has an absolutely wonderful park within the town centre. Also contains the local museum and art gallery, but the park is extensive and has some very old trees and stunning vistas !!
