This neighborhood is lightly populated but offers one of the nicer parks in the city. The park offers many trails that wind along Whatcom Creek, a sandstone bridge from yesteryear with a stunning view of Whatcom Falls, a fishing area for kids under 12, tennis courts, playground picnic areas, two different entrances and so much more. The park also features a trout hatchery run by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. A large part of this park's 240 acres is forested in a natural state and there's also a more traditional, parked out area as well. You will also find York home to many college students and WWU or downtown employees, as it offers bike or walking distance to downtown and WWU.
Schools depend on what side of I-5 in this neighborhood you are in. Either Carl Cozier, Kulshan Middle School, and Sehome or Lowell Elementary, Whatcom Middle School and Bellingham Sehome High.
