“One of the gems of the PNW”
Review of Whatcom Falls Park

Whatcom Falls Park
Ranked #1 of 85 things to do in Bellingham

Attraction details
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I've been here hundreds of times, and I never get tired of it. Whatcom Falls park offers endless trails that connect to the rest of Bellingham greenspace, waterfalls, swimming areas, duck ponds, fishing, paved areas for strollers or wheelchairs, picnic spaces, two separate play areas for little ones and bigger kids, fields for soccer or Frisbee, bathrooms that are clean, and best of all, amazing trees and magical spaces. Truly my favorite park in all of Bellingham.

You can spend hours on the bike paths here. Up and down hills, over bridges, through playgrounds, along the river. Kids loved it. Also deer, rabbits, blue jays in abundance.

This is a great park right here in Bellingham. The falls are beautiful, the trails are easy. The park is much bigger than you would think.

We visited the park to hike around and see the falls. It is a refreshing idea that you can have nice forested areas in a city. The trails are well maintained, there is a family picnic area near the trail head and it was a decent place for a casual hike. The only thing I could suggest to future visiting families with kids in strollers is, make sure you have a jogging stroller with the bigger wheels or find an alternative means of carrying your toddlers. The trails have rocks and tree roots that stick up here and there, which is not that big of a deal, but it did make it a challenge pushing our standard stroller with the small wheels.

We were heading to Birch Bay and decided to break up the drive and explore some. The waterfalls were beautiful and the hiking trails scenic. There are numerous tables and great scenery to enjoy a picnic.
