Bellingham’s parks have always been a locally loved and widely admired part of the city. This exhibition from the Whatcom Museum’s Photo Archives, and the second with a parks theme, features a dozen “new” historical views of Bellingham parks including images of Cornwall, Fairhaven, Whatcom Falls and Elizabeth parks, among others. It’s a celebration of the community green in glorious black and white, perfect inspiration for getting outside in the summer months ahead.
