country in the middle of the city

A park with a water fall and a nice walk in the forest. Couldn't be better to unwind. A must do if you are in the area.

One of the prettiest places for a nice hike or just enjoying the scenery. There is something for all. Appreciate the beauty.

Pardon my french! This place is absolutely magical! Very forrest-y, not like a normal park. Place to come and get lost in the beauty (especially if youve never been). Pay attention to landmarks and maybe get a map ahead of time. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful park! The trails were nice and wide (accessible to bikes) and well maintained. I didn't spot a pothole the entire time. The waterfalls were pretty too, although the trek down to one of them was a little tough with a 19 month old, it was worth it. Very fun overall, quiet and full of lush green beauty.

It was our first time to the Pacific Northwest and heard the walk through Whatcom Park was very scenic. Indeed it was with 2 waterfalls, easy to follow paths, and giant trees. Clean restrooms and picnic area near the trail head next to the fish hatchery. Convenient location inside the city limits of Bellingham.

Not too far and generally pretty quiet. Good for a short walk, but didn't seem to be to many long hikes there.

Went here after work and was in awe about the falls and the bridge still standing from 1939. The sound of the falls along with the serenity of the forest makes for a very relaxing setting let alone photos.

We drove from Mt.Vernon through Chuckanut highway to Bellingham. It was a beautiful drive. We hike around the park for a good two hours. It is a beautiful and very easy hike. At the park there are clean restrooms and a kiddie area.

My family and I have been to this park many times and love to go for a picnic or just to relax while the kidos play at the playground park

The waterfall & bridge are just a short walk from the parking lot, and the trail is well maintained and easy access for just about anyone.
