  Big Rock Garden
by LeoM

A unique 2.5 acre garden in the middle of a neighborhood, where nature and art are blended into the environment. A city park which displays and showcases prominent local and worldly artists that have designed more than a total of 30+ sculptures, paintings, and benches, that either are for sell, donated to the city in memory of a past loved one, or to say thanks for the memories. These sculptures blend with the local flora and fauna. Rhododendrons, azaleas, bamboo, little strawberry plants, and an assortment of 100 types of maple, pine, evergreen and other conifer type trees , which blend in with the local fenced in manmade trails which encompasses throughout the park.

Address: At the End of Alabama Hil, close to Lake Whatcom
Directions: Driving Alabama Hill, towards the end going downhill. It is the last street on the left side ( Sylvan), then follow to the end, and make a right on Balsam Lane. The sign on the right will lead you there.
