“Wonderful park for jogging and hiking”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This was our 2nd visit to this park. We remembered how pretty the waterfalls were and the many walking paths available. The park has an area with a fish hatchery and a pond. There's no fee for parking.

“Pleasant picnic”
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”
Reviewed June 23, 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”
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!”
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.
