Samish Neighborhood One Of The Best In Bellingham

Samish Neighborhood One Of The Best In Bellingham

The Samish Area is located in South Bellingham, east of I-5 and has some notable neighborhoods including Ridgemont, Viewmont, Wildwood, and Samish Highlands. It includes established neighborhoods as well as newer construction. Samish is the best of both worlds with lots of wooded areas with larger lots yet close and convenient to services. There are sidewalks on almost every street, perfect for that evening stroll. Many of the homes have expansive views of the bay and San Juan Islands.

I have lived in the Ridgemont neighborhood in Bellingham, WA for over 4 years. I have to say this is not where we were looking when we were searching to buy but we stumbled upon a fabulous house and have absolutely fallen in love with our neighborhood. Ridgemont neighborhood is off the Samish Way exit in Bellingham across from the Elk’s Club. The location can not be beat! It is really about 10min from anywhere in Bellingham. Very close to the freeway, yet little to no freeway noise most places within the neighborhood.  Ridgemont neighborhood was a middle income area developed in the 1970s. Ridgemont Park is in the middle of this great neighborhood.

This local park, Ridgemont Park is located on 38th Street and has 2 swings, great playground equipment, a basketball court and a large field for playing soccer, etc. It is also surrounded by trees and bushes which kids absolutely love to explore.

Lake Padden is about a 5 min drive from anywhere in the Samish Neighborhood. Lake Padden is the 3rd largest lake in Bellingham with extensive trails which includes a 2.6mile loop around the lake. You can walk, run, ride horses, or bike and it is plenty big enough for a stroller. The lake itself has a swimming area and welcomes non-motorized boats, and fishing docks. You can often see kayakers and stand up paddle boarders.  There is also a large playground, tennis courts, ball field, basketball court and off lead dog park. We often times take our dog to the off-lead dog hiking trails that are south of the dog park as well.

My favorite part? The neighbors are the best! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. It is truly the best neighborhood I have ever lived in and most of that has to do with the people. Not to mention the location is fantastic! So if you are looking to move. I highly recommend Samish neighborhood in Bellingham!
