Wag! Walkers know Birchwood

Many of the neighborhoods in Bellingham have a rural feel combined with the conveniences of a suburban neighborhood. Quiet, private, and large lots characterize much of the neighborhood, combined with lots of amenities and housing. On a walk through Birchwood, you might not see much more than houses depending on where you're walking, but there are plenty of amenities if you're looking in the right places. From restaurants to small corner stores, there are plenty of places to take care of your needs. You might also run across a vet clinic on your walks and, if you are walking towards the southwest end of the neighborhood, you will find a dog park as well. 

Climate rarely causes problems with walking, but expect to have a few rainy days and the rare snowstorm or freezing temperatures. Overall, the climate is mild and you will find that you can walk on more days than not. 

What is the terrain like in Birchwood?

The terrain through this neighborhood is mostly flat. While you will find a few hills, beginners will find the terrain here easy enough to manage while they are first starting out. Of greater concern than the hills is the fact that a lot of the streets throughout this neighborhood are narrow and have no sidewalks or shoulders. This means that you might just spend a lot of your time walking on the streets. If that is the case, it is important that you follow a few important safety rules such as walking on the side of the road against traffic and wearing bright clothing. It helps motorists see you better and helps to avoid accidents! 

As a matter of courtesy, if there is no clearly defined sidewalk, do not let your dog walk in private lawns or gardens. If your dog needs grass to explore, there are nearby parks you can visit. 

How many greenways are there in Birchwood?

At the south end of Birchwood is Squalicum Park, one of the largest parks in the immediate area that provides a range of amenities for you to enjoy on your outing. This park has lots of grass and trees, some benches for taking a break, and a dog-friendly off-leash area for your pup to run around in. There are also some trails, so if you would rather spend your time walking with your favorite four-legged friend, you will find plenty of places to explore! 

There is also a tiny park called Shuksan Meadows Park in the middle of Birchwood that might serve as a good stopping point on your walk. Aside from these two greenways, the only other greenway close by is Cornwall Park which sits adjacent to Birchwood. Cornwall Park also has lots of trails as well as grass and trees, making it a great place for an afternoon walk.
