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. Explore the fish hatchery, or settle in at one of the picnic tables for a barbeque meal and peaceful retreat.

Forested park [75%] w/ waterfalls, ponds, large grass areas, old growth forests, cliff diving/jumping, easy access. A lot of shade and quiet environment-- quite hilly and very scenic. 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.
