A hidden little treat in the middle of Seattle City is the Waterfall Garden. Designed by Masao Kinoshita of Sasaki Associates, this little park has a central 22 foot waterfall as the central feature. The landscaping has Japanese landscaping undertones given it greenery all around with different flowers at different times of the year. The sound of the waterfall and the freshness that gives in the middle of a busy city is really welcome.
This park was built on the place where the United Postal Service (UPS) started. Table and chair seating and benches are arranged for people to sit down and enjoy this man-made water feature. After walking around the Pioneer Square this is a good place to have lunch or chat over some delicious coffee. It's also a pretty place for photo ops!

Seattle Waterfall Garden Reviews & Ratings
I discovered this location after escaping the wrath of some homeless transient I mistakenly awoke after trying to return a package. I thought this was a regular delivery store but it turns out it's a historical vantage point marking the beginning of UPS. Even though you cannot go UPS the waterfall itself you can watch it go DOWNS (which is I'd imagine what the company gets its name). It's quite scenic and the local security guard was quite helpful in specifying that I could not mail my package through any of the available recepticals (when I inquired whether I could ship my return package). Make sure to go a few blocks north or south and you'll find a full UPS branch with delivery capabilities but do take a moment to enjoy the scenic beauty here. I knock off one star only because I was mistaken that it was also a full branch in addition to be a historical landmark.
So beautiful and serene. My boyfriend, our dog and I go get bubble tea from Seattle Best Tea, then get a pastry from the 85° Bakery, and go to the waterfall park and eat&drink everything there and just enjoy how peaceful it is. There is a security guard there, so no hoodlums hangout there, and it's a safe place to take a family or friends and feel like you're in the middle of nature, right in the city🥰🥰
Small and semi-hidden but worth the stop. A beautiful respite from the historic urban jungle of Pioneer Square. Doesn't open till 8am but you can peek in before then. The waterfall is off until they open. Easy to miss if you're not looking for it. Take a relaxing break on one of the chairs or bring your lunch.
Beautiful,relaxing and cozy place hidden in busy downtown. Found it by accident and it was so relaxing. Bistro chairs and tables to seat and listen to sound of waterfall.
The birthplace of UPS is marked by this nice little park in the middle of pioneer square, complete with a waterfall! Very easy to miss it so helpful your eyes peeled.
