Big Rock GardenNestled in a grove of evergreens above Lake Whatcom , Big Rock Garden Park showcases original sculptures in a 2.5 acre garden. Meandering paths wander through the peaceful landscape of Big Rock Garden Park, where nature and art complement each other.

The Park boasts over 37 permanent works by distinguished international and local artists. A striking geometrical sculpture by renowned Mexican artist Sebastian and rarely seen pieces by Canadian artist David Marshall highlight the diversity.  Each May the Friends of Big Rock Garden Park and the Bellingham Parks & Recreation Department sponsor a Mother’s Day Celebration with a focus on the garden and the opening of a new seasonal sculpture show.
