  • 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....  more »

  • I spent a wonderful day working on a video project about the garden with the creator (& past owner of it.) Take the time to learn the story & appreciate the deep love and commitment he & his wife had to giving their son and other's a place to be part of and feel purpose. It is a tranquil and sweet sculpture garden now owned & managed by the parks dept. Who frankly does not seem to understand what it is or how to properly tend it weekly. It needs a comment from the community & volunteers to get it back to being cared for with love.
  • Amazing park. I had no idea this even existed. What a great experience. My apologies to the artists for not crediting them for this work but could not do the art justice unless I took two separate photos of each piece.
  • This is a pretty cool little park. Sprinkled throughout this out of the way gem are 37 art displays. Also comfortabke benches, pagotas, and a generally interesting atmosphere. We wandered for a couple of hours around inclined paths to find some compelling pieces - and enjoyed a quiet, compelling afternoon under a lush canopy of leaves.
  • 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!
  • This was an awesome mid-run destination for our weekly BBay Pub Run. Many of us had never been there. Loved the serenity, sculptures and landscaping. Go here on for a walk or at the conclusion of a run. Great place for families.
