King George V Park

A public park and playing fields on Baillie Street to the north of Whitburn in West Lothian, King George V Park extends to 6.36 ha (15.7 acres) and is bordered by mature trees. It represents one of a network of parks which serve as a memorial to King George V, who died in 1936. Since 1952, it has protected in perpetuity by Fields in Trust (formerly the National Playing Fields Association) but is managed by West Lothian Council.

It includes football pitches, flood-lit tennis courts, a skate-park and changing facilities. There is also a play-park for children and a few picnic benches. There was once a running track here.

The park is a focus for activities during Whitburn's annual Gala Day.
