How many multiple, or cascading, waterfalls do you know of in city parks? WA state has two: in Bellingham and Tumwater. The Tumwater falls has a double upper fall, a middle, and a lower. I enjoyed the lush north trail down to the lower fall. There, one could go on a paved platform and experience the spray, or shower if bold, first-hand. I then walked up the southern trail back to the top. Will take visiting friends there often, as it is clean, lush and unexpected.

So informative plus beautiful and well maintained - this park has it all, a must see for anyone visiting the area. A volunteer directed us to some amazing sights - greatly appreciated! The company I enjoyed on this adventure just made this whole park seem surreal, but to be completely honest I wouldn't doubt that magic was alive here.

Wonderful treat right next to the freeway. Beautiful hike with gorgeous scenery. Watched a couple of weddings as we strolled around. Lots of places to stop and enjoy nature as well as take pictures. Educational spots too. Pack a picnic and make a full afternoon of it! We'll definitely stop here again!

Absolutely loved the hike and the scenery. Loved the beautiful space that has stood the test of time and the history it holds.

Scenic little park with a good walking trail, good regular crowd (not crowded) of the usual walkers and picnickers etc so its pretty clean and safe.been going here for years. Worth the short detour off i5.when the salmon are eunning you can see them in the river and in the fishladder up to the hatchery.I bring my leashed dog with me and have never had a problem
