Fresh air and thundering falls with salmon fisheries and a great maze of trails to explore on foot or bike.

It's beautiful, ever changing, rich in natural light and beauty, and has lots of trails and paths to walk on. Whatcom Creek meanders through the park, fills Derby Pond where kids fish for trout during the season, and ducks and birds hang out looking for handouts. The creek heads over a small dam and down the first of a series... More

We live in Bellingham, and Whatcom Falls Park has always been one of our favorite places to vist, to walk with our dog and to enjoy the changing seasons. The park follows the course of Whatcom Creek, which drains Lake Whatcom and carries its sparkling waters down rapids and falls, through quiet pools and busy eddies, among towering trees trees...

Beautiful park with Whatcom Creek running right through it. Trails, swimming, picnic shelter, dog-walking, biking, tennis and a playground. Less than 10 mins from I-5. Check out the falls and fish hatchery.

I've traveled the world, and this little piece of Paradise cannot be topped anywhere for its peaceful beauty. And it's right in the middle of Bellingham! I live here, and I never tire of walking here. Miles of trails, duck ponds, waterfalls, picnic spots, swim areas. Perfection.

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
