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!
- A piece of heaven in the middle of downtown.
- It's a tourist spot so try to go there early so that you can secure a nice table. Take along a snack or a drink.

- Entry is free.

Just got into the city yesterday and began to wander and explore Pioneer Square. I stumbled upon this and was astounded at the beauty of this hole-in-the-wall park. The waterfall almost drowns out the city, which was comforting to someone who comes from rural Missouri. You could even get a coffee across the street and just listen to the roaring water. Amazing find.
It looks a lot bigger in pictures. Very nice if you live close and trying to get outta the city noise for a few minutes. If you live far its not worth the drive. It's free and clean. You can grab a coffee or something from the coffee shop down the street (they don't sell water but you can have a glass of water for free) and come sit here.
Tranquil little spot in the middle of a questionable area. We walked here from the market. Ended up being a sketchy walk. Seattle is plum full of homeless and shady characters. Luckily we survived to tell the tale. Nice little monument to UPS employee with a private security guard.
Stumbled upon this gem when I decided to explore the city a bit more. It was fairly busy when I visited but what can I say? It’s a gorgeous park and packs a big punch for being so small. Perfect place to read, eat lunch, or even have long uninterrupted chit chats. The sound of the waterfall is very soothing as well. Worth visiting if you’re new to the city.
Its small, clean and with lots of seating.. beautiful view which makes it a nice little escape from the city. Sat here for a few hours and read our books uninterrupted. I like that they had a "security guard" on watch.. who mostly picked up trash and cleaned tables.. but it made us feel safe and relaxed in a less-than desirable neighbourhood.
