“Pleasant picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Perfect spot for a picnic and a little hike. Falls were pretty. Beware of people letting dogs off leash, though.

“A wonderful place to walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

If you are tired of the boring and busy city life, Whatcom Falls Park definitely will be a good place to chill out. Within this park, you can hike on the trails, sit on the ground, or even swim in the water.

“Fantastic Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

While in Bellingham, we decided to find a nice place to take a walk with our dog. We were told about this park and off we went. WOW - what a beautiful park. Lots of activities for everyone. Bike trails, walking trails - unique brick bridge build by the WPA in the 1930s. We walked a couple of trails and were awe struck at every turn. While walking near the pond, we spotted an Eagle perched in a tree looking for food I would guess. He then took flight toward the stream and we lost sight of him. A few minutes later, we saw him again as he was flying back to his perch in the trees. The only complaint is the lack of signage and maps.

“Don't miss this Bellingham treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Beautiful park just minutes from everything. It's a not miss if you are in the Bellingham area. Amazing waterfall and old stone bridge. Don't take it's beauty as it were a water park, it's not, it's rushing water and unforgiving. Enjoy it from the bridge and be safe.

“Dont Miss this Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Want a great walk - check it out. Nice groomed trails great views everywhere. The river flows through the park with a really cool old bridge that has the perfect view of the falls
