Big Rock Garden is only 5 minutes from Whatcom Falls and a match made in heaven. Definitely take an extra hour to see it. (I'd recommend the falls first.) The park is small but beautifully landscaped. The paths aren't flat, but still wheelchair accessible. I...More

Spent a couple hours here in early May, but could have spent all day! The plants and flowers were lovely, but the sculptures were really amazing. Some were very thoughtfully done and all were placed in great spots. They made for great pictures!

Lovely sculpture garden with gravel trails winding through trees. Interesting work by many local and non-local sculpturists.

The park is situated on the side of a hill northeast of downtown Bellingham. Well-manicured trails weave throughout the area with up front and personal views of rhododendrons, Japanese maples, and outdoor sculpture pieces. It is accessible by wheelchair but some pushing and/or restraining is...More

The GPS didn't find this place well, I advise driving very slowly through the neighborhood, as the sign will come up on short notice even at slow speed, and it's a narrow roadway up a hill to the parking lot. Once there, you're out in...More

If you are an art lover, you need to check out Big Rock Garden! Probably not easy to find if you are not a local, and many locals are not even aware of it! Located in the Silver Beach Neighborhood, surrounded by residential homes. A...More

Off the beaten path is this great collection of outdoor sculptures. If I recall correctly there were 32 different sculptures, each in its own style. Well worth a stop. Relatively small parking lot.
