As the most populous neighborhood in Bellingham, Roosevelt is diverse in housing style and land use. The area is majority residential with an industrial zone and commercial businesses ranging from office buildings to car dealerships. What makes Roosevelt shine, however, is the combination of community and diverse housing. Most houses were built between the 1950’s and 70’s with a handful of newer builds, and architectural styles vary widely to fit any potential taste. Roosevelt is an excellent neighborhood for the first time homeowner as homes are reasonably priced while still retaining quality. Modern apartments are spread throughout the neighborhood, and rent is generally more affordable than other areas in Bellingham. 

Additionally, a strong sense of community makes Roosevelt a wonderful place to raise a family. Outdoor trails give plenty of space for children, runners, and bikers to move while connecting the neighborhood to the rest of the city. On the northern edge lies the Railroad trail that leads to Whatcom Falls park, Barkley village, and it acts as a wildlife corridor. Roosevelt park is placed in the center of the neighborhood and is widely used by the residents as a place to run, play, and have picnics. Roosevelt Elementary School is right next to the Boys and Girls Club where instructors teach basketball, soccer, volleyball, and many other activities. For schooling, the typical track goes Roosevelt Elementary to Shuksan Middle to Squalicum High. While the neighborhood is walkable, most errands need a car or public transportation. The public bus line runs right down Alabama street and takes residents throughout the city.

Roosevelt’s affordability gives flexibility to any potential homeowner or renter. The sheer variety of housing in Roosevelt, combined with the community, makes this neighborhood an amazing fit for just about anyone looking to move into Bellingham.
