CORNWALL COVERED COURT FESABILITY STUDY!
The City of Bellingham is currently taking bids until 4/29 to find a qualified candidate to do feasibility study, analysis, and planning for the Cornwall “Covered Pickleball Courts Project”. Hopefully it will turn out that the multi-purpose (tennis) courts can become dedicated pickleball courts, and can be covered. The first step is the feasibility study which will determine subsequent decisions by COB.
Best Wishes to All!

From the Bellingham Park Department:
STARTING TUESDAY MARCH 24th, the city's SPORT COURTS, playgrounds, bike parks, skate park, and golf course WILL BE CLOSED.
Bellingham is committed to keeping our parks and trails open and safe for public use during the Covid-19 crisis. Starting last Monday, staff reorganized to enable two shifts to operate in two zones all around the City, 7 days a week, from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Signage was installed over the weekend reminding everyone about safe social distancing in public parks and trails, and to follow the CDC guidelines.The crews are cleaning and disinfecting park restrooms and frequently touched areas. Since last week, all indoor facilities are closed, and water fountains turned off. All programs, events and reservations were cancelled through the end of April in City park facilities. Park construction projects are continuing during this health emergency.
In Whatcom County, as of 3/22:
Confirmed Cases** 48

May we all do our part to keep those numbers as low as possible.
Please be safe, and may you and your loved ones stay healthy. ... See MoreSee Less
