Things to Do
Whitman Town Park
Whitman boasts a wonderful, walkable downtown as well as a beautifully maintained town park with a playground, basketball court and baseball fields. In winter, the big hill, located in the center of the park, is a popular sledding location. During the summer, you can take in a concert at the gazebo.
Located at 93 Essex Street, this is a small grassy park with a paved walking trail between two ponds. Stroller-friendly and fun fishing for the whole family can be found here!

Local moms can connect through the Whitman Mothers Club. Since 1945 WMC has served the town of Whitman by raising money for local charities and families in crisis. Along with charity work the club also hosts fun annual events like the Candy Cane Craft Fair and Banquet.
