I wish we had such a nice park in Redmond or Woodinville. Miles of well maintained trails, two enjoyable waterfalls, the photogenic historic limestone bridge, and fish hatchery. Was quite enjoyable to see various sized trout and salmon in the respective ponds this February.

What a pretty park with gorgeous scenery! The trails are manageable for walkers, runners, bikers, and strollers. You have multiple trail options to choose from; I very much enjoyed the trail to Scudder's pond. I saw several different bird species and the pond was alive with song. The falls are pretty and there is something enticing about the power of... More

The waterfalls are beautiful, great trails through the woods and along the creek and falls. Two great playgrounds and basketball hoops, and a fish hatchery and its right across from the best donuts in town! Great place for kids of all ages!

The falls at Whatcom falls are very tranquil and the trails are great. I have been able to see owls on my walk through the park. Just a beautiful area.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. This is one of the first places my boyfriend took me, it still to this day is my favorite place. There is so much calm and peace, several waterfalls, and you can hike all around the park. I have been both in the Spring time and Winter time and... More

Stepping into the forested park offers a departure from life's bustle. Trails winding through the park follow Whatcom Creek and have viewpoints of the Falls. It's a favored refuge for locals year round.

Whatcom Falls Park is fantastic not necessarily because it is grander or more jaw dropping a vista than others, but simply because you don't expect it to be there. Off Lakeway Drive, there's this little park (comparatively) with these decent sized falls, a twisting river and a beautiful stone bridge! The play area and cooking areas are more or less... More

Whatcom Falls Park is part of an interurban park system operated by the Bellingham Parks Department and has two entrances off Lakeway Ave. The first entrance takes you to the lower park and is visited most often because of the impressive stone bridge built by the WPA in the 1930s. Ithe bridge is only 50 yards from the lower parking... More
