“Waterfall & beautiful Bridge”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We had a very pleasant short walk to the first bridge overlooking a lovely waterfall. As a photographer, I thought the bridge was as photo-worthy as the waterfall! A series of short walks and longer ones, and friendly people along the trail.

“Beautiful, relaxing, nice swim”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The falls are truly lovely. There are different sized falls along the trail, most of which contain areas where people can swim. The water is clean and cool, feels nice during the summer. It does get busy but the locals and tourists who go there share the space and are really friendly and aware of others who want to get in the water. The walk around is pretty easy and you can even see salmon hatchery pens when you enter the park. If you go definitely bring something to swim in because jumping off the falls into the water below and just having the chance to get your feet wet in this enchanting area is not to be missed!

“Beautiful hikes and biking trails”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Well maintained trails with a swimming spot and easy accessibility. They also have a fish hatchery which is kinda fun to visit. Be careful of the falls when the water is high.

“Soothing retreat within the city”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We've seen a lot in Bellingham and were looking for something more on a hot summer day. Whatcom waterfall park was just perfect. The waterfalls and flowing water made it an almost spa like experience as we relaxed and dipped our feet in. The old bridge is so romantic. We would definitely visit again as time did not permit us exploring more in this place.
A must for those who love walking relaxed trails, serene nature and water.

“Nice place for a stroll”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We visited the park on our way out to Lake Whatcom. It was a very enjoyable experience. There are ample trails and locations for picnics. We enjoyed the walk out across the old bridge to view the falls and eventually made our way up and around the trails to walk out on the rocks overlooking the falls. The parks seemed clean as did its facilities.
