“Great Park”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great park for a picnic lunch or quick getaway from the hustle of the city. The waterfalls are beautiful, nice big trees everywhere and easy walking trails. It is not too far out of the way and a very short walk to the falls. Nice way to spend part of your day.

“Paradise in the middle of the city”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This park was only 0.6 miles from my hotel, so I tried it out for an escape. As soon as you turn into the park, you are surrounded by tall green trees that block off all of the road noise from the city. Once you reach the parking lot, it is only a short walk to Whatcom Falls. I got a lucky spot right on the side of the falls and enjoyed my Woods Coffee beverage to melt the work day away.
Very relaxing and good for a quick visit while in town.

This is a clean and pleasant park near Bellingham. Nice and small waterfall for a quick visit. Plenty of parking too.

“An oasis in the middle of Bellingham”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Having been thwarted in our attempts to see the tulips in Mt. Vernon by a spring blizzard, my friend and I, looking for alternatives, ended up at Whatcom Falls Park. It's a great place to visit for a lot of reasons: for out-of-towners, it's easy to find, the trails are pleasant and plentiful, and you can make it a quick visit or spend the afternoon, depending on how much time you have. The falls are worth seeing, as is the quaint moss-covered stone bridge that traverses them. Just 5 - 10 minutes off the I5, it's worth the side-trip.
