Another Work Party Complete!
Thank you to Shanna Leeland (mowing), Sabrina England and Kelsey Ullsmith (weed whacking), Michelle Becker (weed abatement), Lauren E. and Robbie Harris (paddock post repair). We love our volunteers!
Fall/ Winter/Early Spring Field Closure
When the moisture in the soil approaches a certain level, we remove the portable jumps and close the field to horses for safety and to prevent damage to the footing. Field condition information is on the top right of the home page.
Event Derby was Sunday, Oct 2nd
We had a spectacular day at the Park for our event derby! Thank you to everyone who participated and to everyone who volunteered...we couldn't do it without you!

The Water Jump is open!
The renovation is *almost* complete, the one remaining task is to install the trim boards on the revetted sides, and that will happen in the next week or two. Watch for a photo album/ renovation timeline of the project here soon!
About the Friends of Sunset Farm:
The Friends of Sunset Farm, a non-profit organization, was formed for the purpose of providing assistance to the Whatcom County Parks and Recreation Department in order to support, maintain and fundraise for the Whatcom County public equestrian park known as “Sunset Farm Park."
The Parks Department has had a very limited budget for Sunset Farm for a number of years, and is only able to provide a minimum of mowing around the parking area and the porta-potty. All other maintenance and improvements are provided for through the Friends of Sunset Farm.
You can view more information about the park at the Whatcom County Parks website.
Location: 7981 Blaine Rd., Blaine, WA 98230 (map below)
NOTE: Please follow the rules posted at the park (see copy at the bottom of this page) - especially regarding the jumps, so it will remain a fun and safe place to ride.
Below are the posted rules at the park. Please note that dogs are allowed on-leash only.
