We are very grateful to Linda Wilkins, Secretary of the Friends of Pannett Park, for providing us with more information about what the group does and the many beautiful sights which visitors can enjoy when they next take a trip to this jewel in Whitby’s crown:
“Pannett Park is an award winning park in the heart of Whitby and is home to Whitby Museum and Pannett Art Gallery.
“Bequeathed to the people of Whitby by Robert Elliott Pannett in 1920, it has been restored and is managed in partnership between the Friends of Pannett Park and Scarborough Borough Council, with Whitby Town Council being trustees. It is a much loved local park, both by residents and visitors to Whitby.
“An oasis of peace in a bustling seaside resort, a park for all seasons and for all ages. With a variety of carefully considered planting and several special gardens, which include a Jurassic Garden, a Lily Pool, a Commemorative Garden, a South Seas Garden and a Rose Garden, there is plenty to enjoy. In addition, the marine themed play area is always buzzing. Yet another claim to fame is one of the few floral clocks in the country.
