Step Out for Fun!
In 2015, the Board of the Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2 (BBBPRD2),
formerly known as the Northwest Park and Recreation District 2, embarked on a process
to update the 2009 comprehensive master plan for parks and recreation within the District
boundaries. This process began with a series of community meetings conducted by the
Board to elicit community in-put and suggestions about parks and recreation (see
Community Survey Results in the attachments section for further details, pages 11 - 16).
In addition, the master planning effort took on added importance as a result of the
passage of the District’s four-year levy in November of 2013

What is BBBPRD2
Joshua Davies, Heidi Holmes, Raina Lenton, Leila Humphrey
Blaine-Birch Bay Park & Recreation District #2
(formerly known as Northwest Park and Recreation District 2) was created in 1979 with the boundaries of the Blaine School District minus Point Roberts.
Inactive since 1987, the newly energized BBBPRD2 is working with a new mission statement, a new
Master Plan, and sponsoring ongoing recreational activities and adult & youth educational classes.
In 2014, a resolution to change the name from Northwest Park and Recreation District 2 to Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2 was approved by the Board of Commissioners to help identify the area served. the Board then petitioned the Whatcom County Council for the name change and the council approved the request on February 11, 2014.
What do we all have in common? A love of the
natural beauty and recreational resources of
this northwest corner of Whatcom County. This is
a great place to live and play!
The mission of the Blaine-Birch Bay Park & Recreation District 2 is to provide recreational opportunities, acquire and maintain sites that enhance our quality of life, and preserve the natural and recreational resources of the district.
