Geneva is one of the outmost neighborhoods of Bellingham and where it is tucked in next to Lake Whatcom makes it a quiet neighborhood, perfect for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Narrow country roads and heavy vegetation give this area an almost rural feel. There are no commercial spaces in the area as it is all residential and a few bed and breakfast and retreat style properties, so anything you might need will require a drive into town. There is a veterinarian close by as well as a couple of corner stores all just outside of the neighborhood. 


Weather is overall fairly mild and there are four well-defined seasons, but it rarely gets above 90 in the summer and cold weather is infrequent. The rare snowstorm can paralyze neighborhoods, however, and heavy rainstorms with wind from the Pacific are usually not safe to walk in.

Sidewalks are limited to the main roads and many of the residential roads are quite narrow and have few or no shoulders. These are neighborhood roads and the speed is only 25 miles per hour but should use caution when walking on roads such as this all the same. Make sure to wear bright clothing, walk against traffic, and be particularly aware and cautious when you are walking on roads where there is a lot of plant life since this can obscure a driver’s view. 

Geneva is hilly, although some of the hills are gentle and completely suitable for beginners. You can find terrain for just about every type of dog walker, but you may have to plan your routes, especially if you or your dog are not in the best of shape. You will find the highest hills near the southern edges of the neighborhood and along western side where there are several ridges.

There are only two actual parks in Geneva but this is not the only area you can walk and there are other parks within an easy distance. Euclid is up at the north end of the neighborhood comprised of mostly a wooded area off Lake Whatcom with trails you can enjoy with your dog. 

Ted Edwards is a tiny park that has a picnic shelter, a lot of trees, and a grassy field. As great a place to stop as the grassy meadow is, it is likely to be cool given the amount of shade available. 

The real gem is the access to the Lookout Mountain Preserve just to the south of Geneva. Well over 500 acres of protected land exist here with trails crisscrossing through all of it. There are several trailheads that can be used to access this land and there are plenty of places to walk, hike, and enjoy through these forested areas.
