Whitney Commons, established in 2003, is an interactive park
located in the center of Sheridan between the Sheridan County
Fulmer Public Library and the The Hub on Smith at 320 West
Park features include the pavilion, a playground designed for fun
and safety, large turf areas supporting any number of activities,
the popular water spray grounds, an amphitheater and plaza
area, vintage lighting illuminating pedestrian walks and bike
paths, the Dorothy King reflective flower garden, and closed
circuit cameras providing park security.
Bronze art pieces reflecting and honoring Mr. Whitney’s life have
also added beauty and interest to the park. Learn more about the
sculptures. Whitney Benefits recently completed construction of a new maintenance building next to the park to streamline
park maintenance and make work more efficient.
Whitney Commons is a safe, clean and fun environment for families and the Sheridan community to enjoy. For current
updates about the park, see our Whitney Commons Facebook or Instagram accounts. If you have a park maintenance
issue, please call 307-675-1243.
