Bellingham Reopens Waterfront Park

After an initial postponement due to rain, the Port of Bellingham has reopened the Waterfront Bike Park to the public. The opening was delayed so that crews could fix unexpected erosion caused by massive rain, repairs that couldn’t be made until the track dried out. The park, a collaboration between the port and Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition, features a large pump track and singletrack sidewalk on an uneven gravel surface in addition to picnic tables, according to the port. The bike park is part of a long-term plan to develop a city park that stretches through the middle of the downtown waterfront.
