Welcome to Ferndale, Washington
Photos of Ferndale, WashingtonFerndale, Washington, is a fast-growing community of approximately 9,000 residents, which prides itself on its relaxed, small-town friendliness, award-winning school system, and affordable quality of life.

Set amidst lush farmland, on a southern crossing of the Nooksack River, Ferndale's convenient location on the I-5 corridor is just minutes away from Bellingham, and within easy driving distance of both Seattle to the south, and Vancouver, B.C., Canada, to the north.

Along with agriculture (Whatcom County grows more than 65 percent of the red raspberries in the U.S.), Ferndale's top industrial employers include aluminum producer, Alcoa Intalco Works, and the BP Cherry Point and Conoco Phillips Ferndale oil refineries.

Downtown, Ferndale's business district has a new look, with upgrades to streets and utilities, including installation of underground power lines.

For sports and outdoor enthusiasts, Ferndale offers close-in lake and river sport fishing, 14 golf courses in the surrounding area, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing and camping at Mount Baker, and nearby boating opportunities in all forms, from sailing to kayaking. Just northwest of Ferndale are swimming and clamming beaches at Birch Bay.

The Ferndale City, and nearby Whatcom County Park systems, include extensive recreational facilities. Some of Ferndale's must-see public spaces include early-settlers' cabins at Pioneer Park, the Tennant Lake Interpretive Center and Fragrance Garden, and the preserved, historic farm at Hovander Homestead Park.
