Silver Beach runs along the northwestern shore of Lake Whatcom which is part of what makes this neighborhood popular. Spectacular vistas, lots of recreational opportunities, as well as its proximity to shopping and downtown make this area a perfect place to walk and play. You won’t find a lot of business in the neighborhood which encompasses the entire northern edge of the lake, but what you will find is restaurants, stores, and a veterinarian hospital for your pampered pup. Just a few miles to the west, you will find shopping and pet stores as well, which are easily reachable by car. 

Walking in this area is possible most of the year. Temperatures are typically mild with the occasional extreme temperature that never lasts very long. Your biggest barrier to walking is the Pacific storms that are typical of fall and spring and which sometimes bring heavy rain and wind.

If you love a challenge when walking your dog, Silver Beach has plenty of hilly areas that will get your heart rate up and keep you and your pup trim. There are areas which are flatter, but primarily, you will find hills in most of the neighborhood. If you are just starting out walking, don’t let the hilly terrain discourage you. Most areas have at least a few streets where the terrain is gentler and there is also an abundance of trails and walking paths you can use to work up to walking the bigger hills. 

Some of the roads have a very rural feel to them, meaning they are quite narrow with no shoulders and no sidewalks. Many of the streets do not have a lot of traffic, however, so provided that you follow the safety basics of walking, you should be fine. Dress in reflective or at least bright clothing and always walk against traffic.

Bloedel Donovan Park is one of the most popular parks in the areas because, in addition to the hiking trails that lead out of the park to other areas, there is also access to the lake. Between 8 am and 10 am, you can set your dog loose to run around the entire park! The park has large grassy areas and plenty of trees, so your dog will have plenty to explore and do. Railroad Trail runs out of this area and splits off, going up the greenway on the west side of Whatcom Creek. You can also head west on the trails and into Whatcom Falls Park, another large park. While not a part of Silver Beach, it runs adjacent to the neighborhood and offers many trails and lots of space to explore. With a total of 241 acres there are waterfalls, beautiful wooded areas, and places where dogs are allowed to go off of their leash.
