Greenbank on Whidbey Island

Lying between Admiralty Inlet and Holmes Harbor is Greenbank, a lovely hamlet and ideal setting for the laid back island life. Greenbank is the only South Whidbey community that enjoys the rainshadow effect, the reduced rainfall that prevails on the northern part of the island. The iconic Greenbank Farm, once a working loganberry farm and now a county park, treats tourists and locals alike to farmers markets, gourmet pie, wine tasting, antique shops, galleries, alpacas and walking trails. The farm is a popular backdrop for gatherings including Highland Games, Burning Word Poetry Festival, the Greenbank Loganberry Festival and weddings. Up the hill, the landmark Greenbank General Store offers gas, a deli and groceries. Nearby Meerkerk Gardens is a 53 acre preserve of rhododendron gardens and walking trails that wander through primal forest to sweeping water vistas. In the high season Meerkerk also hosts a number of festivals.
