Whatcom Falls Park, Bellingham

Find yourself surrounded by stunning greenery and waterfalls among the 97 hectares (240 acres) of Whatcom Falls Park. Many miles of walking trails guide visitors over moss- and fern-covered stone bridges and past bubbling creeks. You can enjoy the fishing pond, tennis courts, athletic fields, and playgrounds on offer in this lush haven. Indulge your inner daredevil at Whirlpool Falls, where a 9.1 m (30 ft) drop sends divers plunging into the whirlpool below.

  • We went to Whatcom Falls Park for the purpose of hiking, and were amazed at the beauty of the park. We took the main trail, and it was for the most part an easy hike. There is no charge for admission....  more »
  • Several trails lead in and out of this park. Great for biking, hiking, jogging, or just hanging out at the pond or falls.  more »

  • Absolutely one of the most beautiful parks I've ever been too! There are so many places to hike up here. By that I mean there are a lot of trails. And then the waterfall is my most absolute favorite part! It's so incredibly beautiful. I just love waterfalls and the smell of the water. And I got to experience it with my family. I can't wait to go here again.
  • Beautiful and peaceful for all. Natural serenity. For those of you that have not had the pleasure of visiting this place. It has a park with a covered area as well for gatherings. The waterfall, a hiking trail, and a hatchery. Usually with salmon.
