Cornwall Spray Park and Creek Play: Bellingham Summertime

bellingfam-bellingham-bucket-list-logo1This weekend the kids and I chose #49 off the Bellingham Bucket List and did half of it! Haha! We did the visiting the Cornwall Park Spray Park and didn’t do the Fairhaven one in the same day-but here’s why: Cornwall Park is just SO awesome! It sits on 65 acres of land covered in green forest, creeks, 1 play grounds, a spry park, tennis courts, bathrooms, disc golf course, tennis courts, trails and more! This weekend we played in the spray park, the playground, walked some of the trails an played in the creek, finding fish and crawfish (yes it is crawfish, not crayfish you yuppies! 😉 ). The creek the runs under the bridge directly behind the spray park runs through a cluster of perfect fairy little pools and down into a calm spot. It was was the perfect play for my kids and other around their age and older to explore the wildlife and play in the little waterfalls until the sun was setting.

We like to park in the lot that utilizes the traffic light at Meridian and Squalicum Way, when it not too full. Here the city’s website with more info on the park. The spray park is open 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily through Labor Day! Here are some pictures from our day.
