*****Cross Country field is still CLOSED TO HORSES as of May 13, 2021 (we're getting close though!!!)**
The water jump has been drained and the XC jumps have been put up on blocks.
The arena, round pen and trails remain open all winter. To access the trails WITHOUT crossing the field, go down the gravel lane alongside the round pen, turn right behind the paddocks and continue west (keeping south of the "NO HORSES" signs) until you come to the first trail head near the ditch jumps.
PLEASE! DO NOT RIDE ON THE FIELD, EVEN ON THE EDGES.

Say "Thank You!" to any volunteers you encounter whenever you are at the Park... did you know that is how ALL the work around Sunset Farm Park gets done? Yes, it's true and it has been that way since 1995 -- Robbie Harris
The cross country jumps will no longer be available for public schooling "at will", due to changes in available insurance coverage. Check the calendar page for scheduled schooling days.
No riding on the private gravel road that marks the north edge of the cross country field. We wish to be good neighbors and the gravel road is NOT part of the Park. It is an easement to the two private homes at the back of the Park property.
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.
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.
