Public invited to share ideas for Whatcom Waterway Park

Posted: June 12, 2014 10:09:16 AM PDT

Please join the City of Bellingham Parks Department June 26 for a presentation and open house to discuss design ideas for Whatcom Waterway Park. Consultants and city staff will present background information, and various design options will be presented as a starting point to kick-off the conversation.

The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 26, 2014 at the Bellingham Library Lecture Room, 210 Central Avenue, Bellingham, Washington. This is your opportunity to provide input, ask questions, and learn about all the possibilities of how this former industrial site can be transformed into a public park.

This project is funded with state grant money from the Department of Commerce, with $750,000 available for the first phase of design and development of the park.

The City is working in cooperation with the Port of Bellingham to clean up the area and prepare it for development into an urban waterfront park. The park will be accessible via Central Avenue and the planned Granary/Bloedel Avenue, an area identified as a critically important gateway to the Waterfront District.

For more information, contact Bellingham Parks and Recreation at 778-7000.
