The brick entry for Fairhaven Park on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, in Bellingham. The City of Bellingham plans to remove the gateway, built in 1925, because it is falling apart and poses a danger to the public. Planners hope to use some of the decorative pieces in a new entrance, which would cost an estimated $250,000, if the public raises money for the project.
