As one of the older neighborhoods in Bellingham, York is home to fine architecture, history, and a strong community. The majority of the houses were built in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and despite their age remain well preserved and maintained. These examples of Victorian and Craftsman architecture help the neighborhood stand out even as the surrounding city grows and changes.
An active neighborhood association in York monitors the well being of its 2600 residents and helps maintain the beautiful parks and streets. Residents of all ages enjoy Harriet Spanel Park, whether it’s the walking trails, accessible playground, basketball court, or open field. Additionally, residents work together to maintain the flower gardens at Rock Hill park, where citizens from all over the city come to enjoy the flowers and trails.
The streets in York tend to be somewhat lower traffic and slower, with plenty of space for children to play. The typical school track follows Happy Valley Elementary to Whatcom Middle to Bellingham or Sehome High.
Situated next to Sehome and the City Center, the York neighborhood enjoys plenty of shopping and errand convenience while maintaining its residential status. Nearly all of the space in York is devoted to residential use, fostering a close community without sacrificing necessary businesses. Additionally, the eastern border is made up of I-5, giving residents quick access to the rest of the city and outlying Whatcom County. The Sehome Urban village, downtown Bellingham, Whole Foods, REI, and community co-op are a short drive away.
