The COB plans to develop a park along the Whatcom Waterway called Waypoint Park. The park will include the creation of a beach area, native vegetation, open lawn spaces, pedestrian walkways, a play structure and an Acid Ball art piece from the former Georgia Pacific pulp and tissue mill. Waypoint Park will serve to improve shoreline ecological functions, provide public access and recreation opportunities along the waterfront and connect the waterfront to the central business district (CBD) of downtown Bellingham. The park is part of the Waterfront District Subarea Plan (SAP) approved by the Bellingham City Council in December 2013.
