A good park but has a bad reputation locally as an area where drug users and other undesirables gather.Probably due to the lack of access by car. It has no car park and can only be accessed on foot.

Hi I'm wondering if Whitman park holds the annual musical concert? We went there one year and it was fantastic.. But can't remember where exactly it was and also when it was. I'm sure it was around May time? Many thanks in advance.
