The Cornwall Park Neighborhood gets its name from the large, forested city park located within it. A large portion of this neighborhood's area is occupied by Cornwall Park and the medical facilities located to the east if it. Bellingham's Fountain District, with its many older, well-established businesses, is located in the southern portion of the neighborhood along Meridian Street. The neighborhood has a light industrial area to the north of Cornwall Park, while the area to the south of the park is primarily residential.
Most homes located in the Cornwall Park Neighborhood are single family residences on quiet streets. Homes close to Cornwall Park have a wooded back-drop giving the area a peaceful quality. Houses located on the curved streets surrounding Broadway Park tend to be well-maintained larger homes with large lawns. The few duplexes and apartments in the neighborhood are found in the southern area of the neighborhood, close to the commercial area along Meridian Street. Many of the homes in the eastern portion of the neighborhood are large with functional back yards. The eastern section of the neighborhood, however, has seen a large increase in traffic volume due to its proximity to the hospital and medical facilities nearby.
The Victor A. Roeder Home is located in the Cornwall Park Neighborhood at the end of Sunset Dr. near Broadway Park. The construction of this historic home began in 1903 and was finished in 1908. The Roeder Home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently used as a community cultural arts and social center and is host to many classes, art shows and concerts throughout the year. The Roeder Home is also available to rent for weddings, receptions and meetings on the weekends. It is maintained by the Whatcom County Parks Department.
St. Joseph Hospital, Whatcom County's only hospital, has its main campus located at the north end of Ellis Street, close to I-5. St. Joseph Hospital provides a full range of services for the community and is continually changing to meet the needs of the area's growing population. Numerous medical offices, labs, a cancer center and a skilled nursing facility occupy the area surrounding the hospital, primarily along Squalicum Parkway and Birchwood Avenue.
Cornwall Park is the neighborhood's large, city park located along Squalicum Creek. It has many large evergreeen trees, an open play area, tennis courts, a basketball court, picnic areas, a fitness trail, a playground and a summer spash park. The park also features Bellingham's only disc golf course. The 9-hole course is located throughout the park and attracts many local golfers.
Broadway Park features a large grassy open area and a playground in the southern part of the neighborhood. This long, curved park is lined with homes on both sides and is easily accessible to many area residents.
Bug Lake is located north of the hospital. It has unimproved dirt trails on its south bank and unbridged creek crossings. Bug Lake is one of Bellingham's off-leash dog exercise and training areas.
Parkview Elementary School is located in this neighborhood next to Cornwall Park. Almost all students in the Cornwall Park Neighborhood live in the Parkview Elementary, Whatcom Middle School and Bellingham High School attendance areas.
