Get Out & Explore- Parks in Whatcom County

Get out & Explore some of the parks in Whatcom County! It is mide July already- summer is half way over. I just wanted to take some time to highlight a few of the beautiful parks in Whatcom County. We are lucky enough to live in a place with lots of different options to explore!


Blaine Marine Park

272 Marine Dr, Blaine, WA 98230

This park has a great playground! Part of it is even shaped like a pirate ship. It is located on the bay & a short distance to downtown Blaine.

Silver Lake Park

9006 Silver Lake Rd, Maple Falls, WA 98266

Silver Lake is a gorgeous small lake located in the foothills. They offer camping & cabin rentals April-the end of October. They also have a playground, fishing, & lots of different boat rentals available. They require a max of 10 horsepower on all boats so the lake stays relatively quiet.
