More about Pannett Park

Adjudged the "Best Public Park in Yorkshire" in 2014, Pannett Park is situated just at the edge of Whitby town centre. This beautifully maintained park which has stunning views offers a state of the art children’s play area and for those visitors who have horticultural interests, a wide variety of planting schemes. The Park boasts a lily pool and accompanying wild life, woodland area, rose gardens, a wild plant bank, more formal planting and one of the very few floral clocks in the country. There's also a unique Jurassic garden which is complete with a life-size replica of one of the sea creatures of the time.  Add in a tree, maths and turtle trails to follow as well as both open and enclosed picnic areas and the whole park offers enormous family appeal.

Leaflets which include Pannet Park's layout and the various trails available to enjoy can be found just inside the entrance to the Museum/Art Gallery. Our younger visitors can enjoy creating leaf rubbings whist on the tree trail. Paper and crayons are available from the staff at the Museum desk.
