The Sunnyland Neighborhood is centrally located in Bellingham and is within close proximity to many downtown public facilities. The neighborhood has a diverse mix of commercial, industrial and residential areas. The northern section of the neighborhood is primarily residential with lower densities in the north and higher density housing to the west. There are many well maintained single-family homes on small lots in the northern area. Many of these homes belong to residents who have lived in the neighborhood for years. Other homes, however, are showing signs of aging and disrepair.
The Commercial and industrial areas of the Sunnyland neighborhood are to the south along Ohio Street and north of Whatcom Creek.
