This is a neighborhood park in the old part of Seattle. This park is small and will take about 20 minutes to look around. There are three things in this park: a statue of Chief Seattle, a copy of the original totem pole-the original was burnt in a fire, and the pergoda. If you come here, it is because of... More

My wife and I had been here more than 25 years ago and remembered it as quaint. On a misty Sunday morning, we walked over from the Convention Center. I felt like we had put our lives in danger. The park had multiple tents for the homeless. The doorways of buildings were filled with drug dealers and hookers. People were... More

I enjoyed the old part of Seattle! Walked to pioneer from pikes place. Grabbed some coffee, window shopped, and people watched. It was a great day!

The most positive I can say about Pioneer square is that it is still there with many of its old buildings. There are things to do and see but if you have a limited amount of time then you might want to choose different places to visit in Seattle.

This is a nice, little square on the old part of town. It has many antique shops, restaurants, and tour guides. Very cool place at day and night. Recommended.

This is a lovely part of old Seattle. Nice to stroll around and to look at the old buildings. Plenty of good cafes too.

We wondered into Magic Mouse Toy Store and what a place this is, it is a must see when in Seattle. There are all kinds of gifts, toys, souvenirs unusual gifts to buy, costumes, games etc. We did purchase a Chuckle Buddies laughing motion activated rolling dog. When we got home to Ontario Canada 1 week later, put the batteries... More

If you like classic old architecture, this is a wonderful square to see. However, it is not a destination to spend a lot of time in. It has restaurants and shops, but there is a homeless element that makes you feel uncomfortable to spend any more time lingering around.

Visiting Seattle from cruise ship. Took shuttle from ship to downtown. Driver recommend some places to visit. Pioneer square was on the list. We walked to the square from our hotel on Pike street. Very old buildings in good condition with beautiful architecture. It would have been nice to hang around longer and maybe have lunch but the place is... More

Parking garage had mostly reserved spaces. Finally found a narrow spot on 11th floor after nearly becoming dizzy from all the curves. The area has structures the would be beautiful if cleaned up but it is so over-run with homeless people, people who are "on something", and trash. We left after having a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Some restaurants... More
