Part of the Great Washington State Birding Trail. Beautiful falls and really nice trails. Should be the #1 thing to see in Bellingham.

A great place to get into some trees and woods without the drive. Good bike trail system, too! The rushing water through the park also gives a nice sense of being away on a mini vacation.

i was surprised to find such a lovely park with a spectacular water fall in the middle of bellingham proper. the park has a children's playground, a serene darby pond with park benches, a salmon hatchery, an off leashed dog park and an impressive interurban tail. the playground, pond and salmon hatchery are within steps from each other so it's...

This small park is surprisingly close to the WWU campus. While the falls lack the height of Snoqualmie Falls it makes up in the close proximity of the pathways to the falls. Take shoes with good traction.

A very large park right in the middle of Bellingham! Go anytime of year! There are trails and playgrounds- also a fish hatchery. Truely a gem in the city!

A quiet, interesting place with wildlife surprises (especially birds including owls) and lots of walking/running opportunities.

Whatcom Falls Park is a large park that will appeal to everyone. For groups there are picnic shelters, bathrooms & play grounds for children, miles of trails through woods for hikers and a lovely old stone bridge over Whatcom creek for a photo op. There is even a fish hatchery nan also plenty of parking.
