Birchwood Neighborhood

The Birchwood Neighborhood is located on the northwest part of town. Historically, the neighborhood consisted of many small farms on large lots located on the edge of the city. The original single-family residential character can still be found here, primarily in the western section of the neighborhood. 

Apartment complexes are located along the main roads of the neighborhood including Northwest Avenue, W. Maplewood Avenue, and Birchwood Ave. These apartments are located close to the Park Manor shopping area.

The Bellingham Golf & Country Club has an 18-hole course and outdoor swimming pool in the northeastern corner of the neighborhood. The Squalicum Creek greenbelt forms the southern border the neighborhood. 

Parks

Shuksan Meadows Park is a small park with a playground near Shuksan Middle School. Little Squalicum Park includes a beach and natural area at the end of the Bay to Baker Trail which runs through the neighborhood from Bellingham Bay to nearby Cornwall Park.

Schools

Birchwood Elementary School, Shuksan Middle School and the Bellingham Technical College are all located in this neighborhood.

In general, students living in the Birchwood Neighborhood are in the Birchwood Elementary (right) or Alderwood Elementary attendance areas. Older students attend Shuksan Middle School and Squalicum High School.
