Create an itinerary including Whatcom Falls Park
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.

  • Easy trails and beautiful views -- actually got sandwiches from DaVinci's and a donut from Lafeens and went back and ate lunch under the trees.

  • It was very peaceful to be able to walk by the river and falls. I am not sure if I would call them falls as they're not that big. I think at the end of spring after more rain it would have been...

  • A lovely park with an ancient bridge and beautiful waterfalls. Short and light (there are stairs at some point so not suitable for a baby stroller). Near the parking lot there are public washrooms and small playground. Highly recommended.
  • A very serene area where the falls are flowing. Loved the peace and calm there. Just after a very short hike up the falls you will find another small falls - we saw lot of young people playing,bathing and swimming there - looked fun but I think i read no swimming in falls somewhere in the park so not sure if this was allowed. The small playground is nice for less then 4 years old kids.
