There is nothing to dislike! It has something for everyone: play equipment for children; beach; access to the boardwalk (another jewel in the crown); green grass; a terrific coffee shop; a killer view of the bay. We are so lucky to have this place to enjoy.

This wonderful park, consistently the favorite of locals, was carved out of a number of old industrial and railroad properties at the impetus of the "ladies of the YWCA" and Bellingham's biggest old Rotary Club in the 1970's when everyone agreed it deserved to be a first-class property, and it is a jewel! Connected by pathways to the City's wonderful "Greenways" web of trails, it is always busy with walkers, bikers, joggers, sun-bathers (if there's sun) and on many weekends, events like free entertainment and car or folk music shows, etc. Why is it so popular? Of course, the gorgeous views of the Bay, the mountains, and the fresh air, but also the convenient Woods Coffee Shop for warmth in the winter and "coolth" in the summer. Try visiting the park by walking on the waterfront path north from Fairhaven (maybe a mile round trip) or, on a Spring-Summer-Fall Saturday, with a walk south from the wonderful downtown Bellingham Farmers Market at Depot Market Square: any 'Hamster will point out the route for you! Be on the lookout for herons, eagles, and be sure to stop on the roomy boardwalk and esplanades to check for otters and other sea critters: if you see a stopped group of strollers, find out what's distracting them! Ask a local to tell you about "Tin Rock" or "Star Rock", and learn more about this historic waterfront area; you'll begin to appreciate the great history of this town, once the center of a huge fishing and timber industry.

If you want a place to walk, sit, people watch, jog, walk your dog, live like the locals, let your kids play, let your dog romp in the water, grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, read a book, take a nap, ponder the mysteries of life--this is the spot. College kids, rich retirees, hipsters, bohemian folks old and young, joggers/walkers, dog-lovers, families with kids, you name it--add a fabulous sunset, clear water, and one of the best views and locations in all of Bellingham, and you've got this place. SO very good. GO. Rain or shine.

Boulevard park is a great place for families. You can let your kids play on the nice new playground they just redid. You can go to the beach or for a walk along the pier. They have a coffee shop there so you can stop and get some drinks and a snack.

Beautiful park has long, wide stretches of grass and a pathway right along the ocean with fabulous views of the bay. A perfect place to go for a walk, run or have a picnic. The pathway connects Fairhaven to downtown Bellingham and is open every day from dawn til dusk.
