The 4.1 acre Birch Bay Beach Park was acquired in 2014 using Conservation Futures Program Funding for development of a waterfront community park. In March of 2021, Whatcom County Council approved funding for initial improvements at Birch Bay Beach Park.
Proposed park improvements include:
Installation of a concrete sidewalk at the park entrance, allowing access to the new walking trail along Birch Bay
Replacing fencing that borders Birch Bay Drive
Removal of the deteriorating asphalt paving
Renovating lawn areas
Installing park signage
Improvements are anticipated to be complete by June of 2022
