This neighborhood is home to Whatcom Falls Park, what is considered by most as the best green space available in Bellinghamo. The park is this neighborhood's main resident occupying the northern third of the neighborhood. It is home to miles of walking and biking trails, a playground, tennis courts and a fish hatchery. Whatcom Creek cuts through the park, offering a special swimming hole for area locals.
The residential portion of this neighborhood is comprised of sidewalk lined streets with modest to large sized homes, clean lawns and gardens. Whatcom Falls boasts some of the lowest density housing in the city. If in the area don't forget to check out the local ice cream and donut shop Lafeen's located across from the park in the neighborhood's only commercial zone.
