Reviewed 10 August 2013

Great park, just perfect to keep the children busy.
Beautiful setting, and only a short walk from the town.

“What a great park”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Imaginative, safe, clean play area. Visited yesterday with 8 and 7 year olds and returned today as it was so good. A hidden gem and a nice surprise to us as visitors to the town. Some different itms we hadn't seen in other parks.

“A gem of the North East coast”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

It's a fairly traditional museum, in a lovely park, with gorgeous views over Whitby, and space for young and old to play. The museum is a true gem. It's not a 'hands-on' experience sort of place - but has cabinets crammed with fossils and dinosaurs and costumes, and model boats, and birds, and shells, and so so much more! I've been scores of times now as a child and adult. I still find it all fascinating!

“Families with dogs not welcome.”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

Took our two children to this park as it has a fantastic play area. Well that's what my kids said as I was unable to go through the gates as we have a family pet and they are most certainly not welcome. £500 fine. I sat outside the park on a bench looking at high bushes that block your view of the park completely and had to just assume my children were playing safely. Come on scarbrough borough council what is so wrong with sensible and considerate pet owners from taking their dogs into the park on a lead and watch their children enjoy themselves.

“SOME AREAS OF NEGLECT”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

At a first glance the park is lovely and well kept which I suspect most of it is. Just a few of the surrounding areas to the main bit are littered and lacking plants. The childrens area is nice and safe with enough there to keep them entertained for an hour.
