About 15 miles north of Bellingham, you’ll find the picturesque and quiet town of Lynden. Once a pioneer settlement, the area has grown into a vibrant, family-oriented community while still maintaining its original historical charm. 

Pups and their people love Lynden. The town’s dog park, Bender Fields Dog Park, is a puptacular place to exercise your pooch. The park has one whole acre that is fenced-in where your dog can run free and play in the grass. There is a covered seating area where humans can relax, too. If your pup gets thirsty, there is a water spigot and bowls, but be aware the water gets turned off in colder months. Doggie waste cleanup bags are provided at the off-leash area. 

If you want to join your dog in getting some exercise, just outside the dog park you’ll find the Jim Kaemingk Sr. Trail that meanders through the rest of Bender Fields Park. Your leashed dog is welcome to join you on a jaunt in the park.

Lynden City Park is another spot that sure to make your dog’s tail wag. Take a walk by the creek or enjoy a picnic at this scenic park in the heart of Lynden. Leashed dogs are welcome and the park provides cleanup bags.

If you’re looking for a bite to eat in Lynden, check out Bob’s Burgers and Brew. They’ve got a fur-iendly outdoor seating area and delicious gourmet burgers.

Lynden has four veterinary clinics in the event that your furry friend needs an annual check-up or urgent medical care.
