The company I work for allowed me to host approx. 200 people (employees and their families) in August 2014. This place was a hit! There is water/waterfall, grassy areas, kids play area, restrooms, and plenty of shade as well as covered picnic tables. Parking can be a challenge, but its a cool location to visit and explore. Also there is... More

I've been here many times. One of the best parks around Bellingham. Lovely waterfall, about 20' high. Old growth trees and well-maintained pathways. Very family friendly.

Only minutes out of the city but worlds away! We rode our bikes up to the falls on a lovey spring day

Beat the heat, but PLEASE be careful in the water!! Too many serious injuries/drownings occur. Don't jump!

This park is so versatile and a true gem of the Pacific Northwest! Hiking, walking, trail running, playing on the playground, watching the unique waterfalls cascade over the rocks. Please do not swim in the water here, it can be very dangerous!

The falls are easily accessible, and there is a great swimming hole ( probably more than one, but we happened upon one) near to the falls. Definitely see while in Bellingham.

One of my friends drove across the states visiting national parks and said that this is better. Lots of winding woodsy trails to walk, bike...

You couldn't drive in to see anything anymore. Since I can't walk far, I couldn't get to the falls. I wanted to revisit memories from my childhood.

I absolutely love this place, the waterfall is so pretty and peaceful, it just feels good to be in nature and on the bridge. You can take amazing pictures there as well, very cool place to visit!

Just don't go expecting Niagara, Snoqualmie, or Willamette, as what you will get instead is the feel that you are walking a few hundred yards along the town drainage line, watching water fall over concrete dams. It seems from pictures posted online, that the one endearing quality of this place is that it provides an opportunity for amateur photographers to... More
