Nice park

Grass to picnic and enjoy the sun. Swimming area. Free parking. Be sure to hide/secure valuables. The van was broken into and a purse stolen while at the park.

Nice swimming area. Brought back many memories...even of ice skating one year when the lake froze in that area. That rarely happens.

I like this park with the beautiful lake and the great picnic area and all of the amenities, It would be a great place to take the family and be able to take the dog to the park and let them swim also.

I live within walking distance of this park and I go there often. They just finished doing so remodeling including adding a boat house for local non-motorized boats. There are big lawns to walk on and a play area for kids. There are also volleyball courts. And an area to walk dogs. We love to walk there and watch the... More

Bloedel park is situated on Lake Whatcom and is a favorite of local dog owners. it has a swimming beach and boat launch that is well used in the warmer months, as well as a large building used for art shows, meetings and other activities.

The best area in Bellingham for sunbathing and people watching. Plenty of trees for slack-lining and a well kept volleyball sandpit.

What a great spot to swim, boat, picnic,... A boat launch and dog friendly park on the north end of Lake Whatcom. Bring a picnic or launch your boat on this huge lake for some summer fun.

The park has a fun playground as well as a "shallow-end" swimming area for younger kids. Very friendly atmosphere and during the summer months there is ALWAYS something fun going on in the pavilion!

This is a nice park with shade and swimming for the kids. There are swings, slides and room to kick a ball around. Lots of kids jump off the small bridge into the water. It is smack on the waters of Lake Whatcom. There is even swimming for your pooch until 10am in the summer before the kids arrive! Lots... More
