Living Near Lake Padden Park
At Monterra Apartments, we understand that as important as amenities at home are to all of our residents, there’s also the need for certain nearby attractions that add an additional layer to the comforts of home. It’s different for everyone, but if you’re a fan of the great outdoors, you’ll definitely want to take a look at our Bellingham apartments near Lake Padden Park.

The sprawling public park, which sits less than 3 miles south of our community, boasts the picturesque centerpiece of Lake Padden and is chockfull of activities to keep outdoor enthusiasts entertained day in and out. Whether you’re looking for something adventurous, relaxing, or perfect for the whole family, this place has everything you could imagine.

First and foremost, Lake Padden Park is always a good choice for a leisurely afternoon of picnicking. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything as remotely as stunning to enjoy an afternoon meal sprawled out on a blanket. (Conversely, if you’d prefer to stay off the ground, there are sheltered picnic tables available for use; you can even take advantage of a selection of grills.)

For something a little more active, trek along the miles of trails available. Some sections circle the perimeter of the lake, but others will lead you through the woods, where you can spot local wildlife. You can even traverse these on horseback if you'd prefer that route.

Sportier folks will be happy to find an array of options to organize either formal or informal games. There’s a basketball course, multiple softball fields, multipurpose fields, and even an 18-hole golf course to tee off at. If you're new to the golf world, there are even practice facilities and lessons available right on site.

And hey, the park isn’t just great for us bipeds; if you’ve got a furry four-legged friend that needs to expel some extra energy, there’s a fenced-in, off-leash section where you can let them run to their heart’s content.

If the outdoors are important to you, Bellingham apartments near Lake Padden Park are about as good as it gets. Contact Monterra today to learn more or to schedule a tour!
