Phase One Design for Community Park at Cordata

Public Meeting

April 24, 2018 - by Nicole Oliver

​Bellingham Parks and Recreation invites the public to the second of three public meetings to review and comment on plans for the first phase of the new community park in the Cordata neighborhood. The meeting will be held May 1, 2018, from 6 – 7:30 pm at Birchwood Presbyterian Church, #3 Chapel, 400 Meadowbrook Ct, Bellingham.

“Cordata Park will be a wonderful addition to our park system,” said Leslie Bryson, Parks & Recreation Director. “Serving the north end of town, the unique activities and landscape of this park will make it a new favorite,” Bryson added. The design is based on the park master plan adopted by the City Council in September 2017. Phase one focuses on the north activity node including a spray park, playground, parkour area, bicycle pump track, adult exercise area, picnic shelter and restroom. Phase one also includes a trail loop through the park, an open playfield, pedestrian gateways, landscaping, art, and parking.

The Parks and Recreation Department welcomes all residents to attend the May 1 meeting but will also accept written comments, which can be e-mailed to Jonathan Schilk at or mailed to the Parks and Recreation Department at 210 Lottie Street, Bellingham, WA 98225.

The City acquired the new 20-acre park in 2015 with voter approved Greenways 3 Levy funds.  The park is located on the east side of Cordata Parkway between Stuart and Horton Roads, in the Cordata Neighborhood.
