Happy Valley

Bellingham’s Happy Valley neighborhood lies just east of Fairhaven.  The neighborhood is close to Western Washington University with that being said it is a popular location for student housing. Pockets of quiet, undeveloped areas remain. You can still find owls, deer, and great blue herons, see horses grazing or walk to a community garden. You can stroll through wetlands, forests, or meadows, enjoy vistas of the Chuckanut Mountains or Bellingham Bay, or look for fish in Padden Creek. The area is largely forested supplemented by wet meadow habitat. Happy Valley Park on Donovan Avenue provides a small, active neighborhood park with playground, picnic shelter and open field. Much of the southern section of the neighborhood is zoned and developed with single family residences. Happy Valley Elementary and Sehome High School are located in the neighborhood.
