We just spent a brief time at the falls but they were nice. I would not make a special effort to drive to the falls but it's a good spot to take a break from driving.

Wandered by the park for a walk on a trip through Bellingham. Nice shady park with lake pools and falls to swim in. Plenty of parking, clean, popular.

This park was very pretty and its huge! There are multiple parking areas to go to different areas of the park and the trails can go on for a while.

A beautiful place, easy walk to the gorgeous waterfall. Path is paved, can be a little slick after a rain. Nice place to picnic.

Easy trail with great views of Whatcom Falls. Well maintained trails. Playground was nice. Recommended for all ages. Compact dirt so can get a little muddy but wide enough for strollers.

Love this park and very grateful we have it at our disposal, however, some of the outer sections of the park continue to be occupied by vagrants. The favorite campsites are along the creek in and out of the park.

We didn't know there were two parking lots at first.

Our GPS routed us to what we now call the upper parking lot. From there, there were no clear signs about where the falls were. We asked some folks, and they directed us down a long steep path. My husband started walking down it to see if there was a chance I could make it. We was able to see that there was a lower parking lot. We drove around in that direction and found it -- the sign is positioned for cars traveling from the other direction.

From the lower parking lot, the path was moderate for me. There was a waist-high fence that I could use to help steady myself. So taking it slowly, I was able to make it down to the waterfall.

The waterfall itself wasn't going great guns when we were there, but it was nevertheless beautiful, as was the surrounding area.

One of my favorite aspects of visiting this public park is how filled it was with people enjoying it. Hiking, picnicking, or just staring at a stream, it represented the best of a public space. As the long-time maintenance worker at the park near our home once said, "Parks are meant to be used." They're not museums. They're not for a select few. Whatcom is a public space filled with meandering, interconnected trails that, for this non-Northwesterner, were magically different than what I'm used to.

This park is big and gives you a chance to get out of the sun and get a mile or more on your fitness tracker of choice. Interesting history.
