This is a wonderful park. Great for a light stroll or playing with fido. Probably don't visit it often enough.

Easy walking trails well sign posted...only concern is to keep an eye open for the mountain bikers as they wiz by. The off leach area is not your typical fenced square but wide open spaces. Just ask anyone where it is as did not see signs posted for it, until we found it.

This park is a must visit for anyone in Bellingham. The Interurban trails leading to and from the park are a pleasure and walking alongside the many creeks and falls in the park is great. It's a great relaxing place for everyone. If you have kids there is also a play area. Definitely check out the pond near the hatchery... More

Wow, there aren't words or pictures to describe the beauty of this park. It was way more than I could have ever expected. With waterfalls, trails, a walking bridge, and charming forest creatures, Whatcom Falls Park stole our hearts. We will be back any chance we get and highly recommend it to anyone. Bellingham appreciates how important parks are to... More

I often visit Whatcom Falls park when I have some time to kill or just need to get out of the house. The waterfall and bridge are beautiful. The rest of the trails are fairly easy and clearly marked. A great place to spend time outside.

Such an amazing park located minutes from downtown Bellingham. Definitely worth a visit. Be sure to take a stroll across the bridge built by the WPA in the 1930s.

This is a marvelous place to take a stroll. It can be reached from downtown via the Railroad trail. In the summer time it is a wonderful way to spend the day.

We live close to this park and walk/ride the trails often. The stately Douglas Firs, cascading creek,waterfalls, bird watching, and fish hatchery creates enough interest for everyone. When you feel like you need a respite from the city of subdued excitement, take a serene walk in Whatcom Falls.

While I tend to spend a majority of my time in this park on the West End (by Bayview Cemetery) because of their offleash dog walking area, my kids enjoy going to the duck pond and giving them crusts of bread or playing on either of the two kids play areas (toddler & bigger kid area) as well as playing...

I am so happy to live within walking distance of this park. It's where I always want visitors to Bellingham to see. The trails are a wonderful exploration, the fishery is fun for all ages, beautiful any season.
